Rich and developed dried pear and apricot notes stream from the nose of this wine, signifying its evolution. The palate is dry but rich with fruit and an emollient sense of vanilla spice. This is structured and bold, holding ample power within its broad shoulders and plenty of length on the finish. Pair with an equally potent dish or cellar and drink through 2020. (AK)
Aged in used 1,000-liter Stockinger oak vats and used barriques for one year, the 2013 Grüner Veltliner St Georg has precise and concentrated fruit on the nose. It is intensely fruity and powerful but doesn't have the finesse and elegance of the 2015, which was aged for 20 months on the lees. The 2013 is elegant and has a rich, concentrated fruit core but is also a bit austere on the finish. There is a sweet touch here due to the richness, though the phenolics are a bit harsh. Tasted December 2017. (SR)
Instead of going to the Weinviertal as they have with past vintages, sommelier Aldo Sohm and vintner Gerard Kracher headed to Burgenland, finding a vineyard in St. Georgen am Leithaberge, just northeast of Eisenstadt, along the southern edge of the Leitha forest. The wine they made from it tastes like no other, a grassy, minty grüner with a cool, wheaty richness. Reduced at first, it needs time and air to emerge, growing with a leesy richness that will make it an easy companion to cream-sauced seafood and other rich dishes.
