2016 Von Stein Reserve Salomon Undhof
This really is the Jewel in the Crown. Made from 70 year old vines, it is creamy textured and packed with ripe white and yellow fruit flavours. As ever this is very racy, pure and mineral. There's plenty of texture here, as well as a lovely saline note on the finish that makes it ever so moreish. Delicious stuff. L&S (Sep 2018)

You get a lot of bang for your buck with this gloriously racy grüner made from 70-year-old vines grown on steep, terraced vineyards behind the town of Stein on the Danube. With masses of elegant, mineral, grapefruit and preserved lemon zest pizzazz, creamy fish dishes love this.Jane MacQuitty, The Times (Feb 2021)
A subtle nose with tinned pea and green pear. Nice weight to the wine with a cereal note and ripe fruit with lovely zesty freshness. Linear and elegant and finishes pretty long. Drinking range: 2019 - 2025 Rating: 16 Alistair Cooper MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Dec 2019)
Smoky nose and relatively low acidity but creamy texture and very flattering and dense. Interesting! Herbal. Drinking range: 2018 - 2023 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Oct 2018)
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.
