Alzinger Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Ried Mühlpoint 2016, 0.75L
Grüner Veltliner from Wachau, Niederösterreich

"Light on its feet, this white reveals peach, apple, piecrust and grapefruit notes. Vivid acidity keeps this focused, and the finish is clean and salty." Wine Spectator 91 Points

F. X. Pichler Grüner Veltliner Loibner Steinertal Smaragd 2015, 0.75L
Grüner Veltliner from Wachau, Niederösterreich

“Fermented in tank and then aged in cask, whence I last tasted it, this projects a relatively soft profile, with ripe Bartlett pear and honeydew melon lusciously dominating. But welcome counterpoint arrives in the form of varietally typical crunch of snap pea, site-typically peppery pungency and stony impingement, and a glowing piquancy of fruit seed on the impressively sustained finish. Among the current collection’s Grüner Veltliner bottlings, this one preserves noteworthy juiciness and balances richness with tension and invigoration.”  Vinous 92-93 Points

“The 2015 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Loibner Steinertal is a medium to full-bodied wine with a very nice and mineral acidity and a refreshing bright fruit flavor. Tightly woven but very elegant and with grip. Very promising.” Wine Advocate 91-92 Points

Franz Hirtzberger Grüner Veltliner Spitzer Rotes Tor Federspiel 2015, 0.75L
Grüner Veltliner from Wachau, Niederösterreich

“Based on multiple pickings from late September through the third week of October, this reflects a diverse array of crunchy, nutty and peppery greens ranging from spinach through cress. An upwelling of roasted lentil and turnip informs the satiny palate, with apple and honeydew suggesting sweetness while supplying refreshing juiciness. The superbly sustained finish is strikingly transparent to stony, crystalline mineral impingements. An ore-like glow there marries beautifully to low-toned vegetable elements, while peppery nips of cress and crunch of leafy greens provide persistent invigoration. This classic of its genre joins a long line of Hirtzberger Rotes Tor Federspiel bottlings that deliver in their own distinctive way every bit as much intrigue and pleasure as a top-notch Smaragd, and that age terrifically, too. But this particular bottling belongs near the head of the aforementioned line, and for reasons other than simply being the most recent!”  Vinous 93 Points

“Subtle pear fruit and just a touch smoky. The acidity is relatively gentle but sufficient for the depth and richness here – surprisingly rich for a Federspiel. Some spice on the palate and a lovely creamy texture.” Jancis Robinson 16.5 Points

“From several vineyards in Spitz, the 2015 Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Rotes Tor is Hirtzberger's commercially most important wine. The 2015 is an intense and refreshing wine with a good body, ripe fruit aromas, a piquant acidity and a pretty complex and salty, well-structured finish. A pretty powerful Federspiel with a good finish.” Wine Advocate

Grüner Veltliner from Niederösterreich, Niederösterreich
