    Just a beautiful little wine. Pure, fresh-textured with great drive and presence on the palate. Yellow stone fruit, spice, some green gauge plum, sugar-snap peas and white floral hints. Elegant and mineral infused. The name "Hasel," meaning "Hazel," is to represent the way early vignerons in the region used thickets of native Hazel trees to identify areas with good, deep loess soils that also happened to be perfect for vines! Birgit is one of the THE up-and-coming winemakers in Austria--she is held in the highest regard by her peers.

    This Gruner opens up with Golden Delicious apple, Bartlett pear and hints of spices. On the palate it has lovely creaminess and juicy acidity. It's done in stainless steel with no maceration, which gives it a lot of freshness and purity of Gruner Veltliner. As days are getting warmer this wine should be a necessary addition to your spring and summer drinking.

    A lovely, well-balanced Gruner that hits all the right notes! This wine has the classic fresh acidity and tangy power that you look for from the varietal, but at the same time there is a lovely creaminess on the palate, and a soft fruit note that pulls the wine together beautifully. With the added complexity of some time on the lees, this is a great example of Gruner with both a soft richness, and a light, crisp style.

    This wine spring in a bottle. Cool, crisp, subtly green and hinting at sun-ripened goodness. Great Gruner aromatics, floral, spicy with a burst grapefruit tone that makes me so happy. The palate it cool stone fruit, cool pear, and sweet green pea notes. It is clean and mouth wateringly refreshing. Something that I want waiting for me in my fridge when I get home at night.
