Bittersweet iris perfume mingles alluringly with intimations of ripe apple and pear that then lusciously inform a silken-textured, buoyant palate. Riesling-like vivacity and bright juiciness never turns outright tart. Fresh green bean and snap pea contribute Grüner Veltliner-typical elements en route to a consummately refreshing, mouthwateringly salt-tinged and exhilaratingly vibrant finish. Here is 2014 at its unique best; and I may well have underestimated this wine’s aging potential. Drink: 2016-2028 (Feb16) (No scores are given on request of the winemaker)
| David Schildknecht,

From the terraced slopes of the "Hochrain" in Wösendorf, the Grüner Veltliner thrives in deep loess soils. Here, the wines develop nutty and spicy tones with yellow fruit aromas. In comparison with the Veltliner from primary rock, the "Hochrain" is a precise example of how much the soil influences the character of the wine.
