2019 Ried Kögl Salomon Undhof

Grapes Riesling
Colour White
Origin Austria, Kremstal
ABV 13%

Heady white pepper and so precise. Gorgeous! Rich lime juice but a bone-dry herbal finish. Long and a delight. Drinking range: 2021 - 2026 Tamlyn Currin - www.JancisRobinson.com (Aug 2021)

*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.

Global Riesling Masters 2021:
Lemon yellow. Hint of sulphur, touch of reduction initially, even sulphidic, clearing to reveal some lime zest and peach. Palate clean, with lots of ripe peach and even a touch of apricot, very gently sweet, dry stone-like note on the finish. Very good. Persistent. Balanced.
Rating: Gold Medal The Drinks Business (Dec 2021)

Christmas note:
Thoroughly satisfying dry, full-bodied Riesling with notes of lime and flowers that would pair particularly well with fish, raw or smoked. A good price. Full note:
Particularly bright fruit on the nose, which is still very much evolving. Really well chiselled on the palate. A particularly precise Riesling with breadth on the palate and notes of lime and a floral note on the finish. Classic dry Riesling with real vibrancy and ageing potential. By no means overpriced.

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.
