2016 Wachtberg DAC Erste Lage Salomon Undhof
|Classification||DAC Erste Lage|
Apple, honeydew melon and mirabelle feature on a high-toned nose, coupled with hints of green bean, white pepper and white asparagus reminiscent of Neuburger. For a wine of just 13% alcohol, this is quite voluminous and glossy, but it’s also brightly juicy, and not in the least heavy. Saline, alkaline, and white pepper notes, along with hints of rhubarb and blond tobacco, serve for saliva-inducement and invigorating counterpoint on a vibrant, admirably clear finish. Drinking range: 2018 - 2024 Rating: 91-91 David Schildknecht, www.vinousmedia.com (Oct 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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.
