2019 Wachtberg DAC Erste Lage Salomon Undhof
|Classification||DAC Erste Lage|
Full screwcapped bottle 1,230 g. From south-facing terraces with a thick loess layer on top of the primary rock soil behind the old town of Krems. Not picked until the first week of November. Six hours' skin contact followed by two days' settling and then an eight-week fermentation. Matured on fine lees until May, partially in wooden barrels. Sleek and complex on the nose promising further rewards for the patient. Rich ripeness under a veneer of citrus, even yuzu. Thoroughly lip-smacking. Manages to combine the natural weight of the variety with lightness of touch. Taste the geography! Drinking range: 2021 - 2027 Rating: 16.5+ Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jul 2021)

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.
