Lea & Sandeman reviewWhile still quite tight on the nose the texture and fruit on the palate is immediately appealing. Beautifully poised and long, this will develop very nicely. Very fine indeed.
20/02/13: ‘We re-tasted this terrific Gruner at the last generic Austrian Wine event a few weeks ago. A scintillating effort from a top-tier vineyard and producer.
Vivacious, with a purity of pale plum fruit, a touch of pepper – and a sprightly, long finish. A great match for Vietnamese Glass Noodle salads and Beetroot-cured Salmon.’ L&S
Sorry, not all bottle sizes of this product are in stock in our warehouse. However, we may have some bottles in one of our shops - why not give one of them a call?
Founded in 1792 SALOMON UNDHOF is a wine estate with a long tradition. The Salomon family from the Wachau produces white wines from the best terraced "Urgestein" sites along the Danube River in Stein and Krems. Today Bert and Gertrud Salomon run the winery.
The famous Riesling of the estate thrives on the topsites of Kögl and Pfaffenberg. The Grüner Veltliner Von Stein comes from the steep terrassed hills behind the old town of Stein. The best "loess" soils provide the Lindberg and Wachtberg Grüner Veltliner. All the grapes are harvested traditionally by hand only. Their great vineyard locations and meticulous work in the vineyards are prerequisites for their elegant wines. Wines with finesse and perfect mineral balance reflect the very special micro climate of this lovely river valley. The Estate’s Grüner Veltliner and Riesling distinguish themselves through elegance and consistency.
