2015 Undhof Kögl Salomon Undhof
Bottled in May, this mingles the honeydew melon, green apple and white currant familiar from its intro-level generic counterpart, but there is a lovely, bittersweet florality wafting throughout, and counterpoint is delivered by stony and piquantly herbal notes on a sustained, tangy, modestly juicy, slightly chewy finish. Hopefully, with another year or so in bottle, this seemingly underdeveloped wine will begin rising to the potential of its site and vintage. A shaking did it a lot of good.

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.
