    Austrian Wines
Austrian wines have made a really BIG  impact in the last 5years; the wines listed below are from top growers so represent excellent value for money!
     
    FX PICHLER
Considered one of Austria's top White wine estates, making profound wines that age very well.
     
15 75cl Riesling  Smaragd
'Kellerberg'
FX Pichler

Antonio Galloni/David Schildknecht -
A pungently smoky, incisive, savoury mélange of sage, dark tobacco and black pepper is allied to ripe peach and garlanded with heliotrope in a head-turningly intense nose. That full range of elements reprises on a polished palate, whose textural caress and sweet sense of ripeness are combined with welcome, tangy, chewy counterpoint of peach skin and a refreshingly juicy squirt of fresh lime.
The finish offers a mouth-wateringly prolonged, kaleidoscopic interaction of fruity, savoury and smoky elements
– plenty rich, yet with rare cut and animation for its vintage.
2015 £58.00

24 75cl Riesling  Smaragd
'Steinertal'
FX Pichler

Antonio Galloni/David Schildknecht -
White peach and grapefruit aromas mingle with honeysuckle on an enticing nose, and the three reunite on a glossy palate lusciously ripe and loaded with liquid floral perfume but simultaneously exuberantly and invigoratingly bright. The finish offers prolonged counterpoint of fruity, floral and stony elements. This bottling displays a combination of penetration, refinement and balancing acidity that is rare for an Austrian Riesling of its vintage.
2015 £40.00

24 75cl Gruener Veltliner Smaragd
'M'
FX Pichler

Antonio Galloni/David Schildknecht -
Sourced from Loibenberg, Kellerberg and Liebenberg – the latter two sites not picked for this bottling until the final week of October and hence vinified separately – I last tasted the 2015 M preassembled from cask. Ripe aromas and the drippingly luscious palate presence of Persian melon, mango and grapefruit dominate on a soft and subtly oily-textured palate. Hints of smoky black tea and incisive black pepper lend a bit of welcome, stimulating counterpoint to the lingering finish of this lushly fruity performance.
2015 £58.00

    WEINLAUBENHOF KRACHER
One of Austria's top Dessert Wine estates, making rich and velvety wines that age very well.
     
5 37.5cl Cuvee Beerenauslese,
Neusiedlersee KRACHER
(Dessert Wine)

Antonio Galloni -
A distinctly richer, deeper palette of aromas and flavours emerges from the 2009 Cuvée Beerenauslese. Tropical fruit, peaches, yellow stone fruits and spices flesh out in a wine that is beautifully layered, voluptuous and textured. The blend is 75% Welschriesling and 25% Chardonnay, aged 80% in steel and 20% in cask. Residual sugar is 114 grams per litre.
Please note, that the above is the review for the 2009 vintage, as the 2011 review is currently not available.
2011 £27.00
