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)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

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 - 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 - 2018)

The Undhof bottling formerly known as “Von Stein” now issues entirely from the Steiner Goldberg and is identified as such. (Apparently the Weinkontrolle has no issues with the continued qualification “Von Stein.” The wine is, after all, grown on Urgestein and in the commune of Stein.) Ripely scented, lusciously dripping honeydew and Persian melons gain welcome invigoration on a glossy palate from a tang of pineapple core and rhubarb. Peppery, stony impingements add further stimulation on a finish still full of luscious fruit and surprisingly buoyant for a wine of 13% alcohol.

Salomon Undhof

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.
