Wine Enthusiast 2021
Voller Freude dürfen wir unserer Auszeichnungen, des Wine Enthusiast, mit euch teilen.
2019 Ried Steinhaus Reserve Riesling (Kamptal)
A flinty, smoky whiff still speaks of a little yeasty reduction, but deliciously so. A zesty, mouthwatering streak of lemon shines through, creating a tingling sense of freshness. All this is contained in a stony, taut, sleek body. Hold on to your seats, this is freshness supercharged. Drink by 2050.
2019 Ried Kittmannsberg Reserve Grüner Veltliner (Kamptal)
Citrus pith and oakmoss carry the nose. The palate, however, comes in with a richer, smoother edge. There is a fine, textured, pithy freshness, too, and some understated power and drive. Drink 2022–2035.
2019 Ried Lamm Reserve Grüner Veltliner (Kamptal)
Subtle smoke and roasted hazelnut create an appetizing aroma. These twin notions are even stronger on the palate where they create immense creaminess and smoothness alongside a lick of vanilla. All this richness is countered by a ripe and zesty notion of Amalfi lemon. It’s a very balanced but supersmooth wine.
2019 Ried Loisium Reserve Grüner Veltliner (Kamptal)
A bright, fresh and pure note of ripe green pear immediately hits the nose. More air adds an appetizing hint of yeast, too. The palate is smooth and easy, redolent with ripe pear and edged with a little citrus pith. There is some warmth on the finish but also much concentration and real freshness.
2019 Grüner Veltliner Kamptal DAC (Kamptal)
Green pear and a touch of crushed yarrow make for a spicy, inviting nose. The palate then switches to creamy ripeness, a generous but toned flow of Mirabelle and yellow pear, always with that echo of herbal savor in the background.
2019 Riesling Kamptal DAC (Kamptal)
Subtle notes of lemon and citrus foliage appear tentatively on the nose. The palate supports their freshness with slight spritz on a light, easy and bright body that is as refreshing as a summer breeze.
