2017 Riesling Salomon Undhof

Grapes Riesling
Colour White
Origin Austria, Kremstal
ABV 13%

Fermented in clay amphora, and left on the skins for several days, a winemaking technique which is gaining interest in the world of 'natural' wine. The fact that the Amphora are buried beneath apricot trees feels right, as the complex aromatics include floral, citrus and peach and apricot notes. Surprisingly full-bodied and textured, with delicious weight, all held together and kept bright and juicily linear by fine acidity. A brilliant apéritif and a great food wine too. L&S (Oct 2018)

For a qvevri-aged wine it is certainly not orange, just a very light golden hue. Lovely nose with subtle notes of mandarin skin, jasmine and honeysuckle. Vibrant fruit and lovely weight with fizzing acidity, the tannic bite is subtle but really adds a textural dimension to the wine. A thoroughly engaging and delicious wine. Long, precise and layered.

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.
