Gruner Veltliner

Ah, what a majestic varietal. The Grüner Veltliner grape takes up around 33% of all vineyards in Austria and is also well-represented in Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic (where it takes up roughly 11% of all vineyards). Wines made from this magnificent varietal have recently bested even some top-class Chardonnays, proving their ability to compete on the world stage and carving their place in history. Aside from straight white wines, the Grüner Veltliner grape is used for various sparkling wines, showcasing an appealing versatility.

Certain Grüner Veltliner blends are made to be consumed shortly after production, whereas others are made to gather nuance and develop over at least a few years (usually longer). While they may not be very aromatic while still young, eventually you will pick up on compelling traces of celery or white pepper, with a thread of fine citrus binding it all together. Certain full-bodied blends bring a helping of honey to the mix, creating a syrupy, rich aesthetic that slowly engulfs your tastebuds much like a creamy cake would.

Drinking a glass or two of fine Grüner Veltliner is an existential, spiritual experience, one that you end up thinking about for months to come.

2019 Schloss Gobelsburg Ried Renner 1 OTW Kamptal DAC Gruner Veltliner

No written review provided | 97 W&SFresh yeast still plays uppermost in the aromatic register of this spicy wine. The palate, enhanced by slight spritz, then speaks of white pepper, crushed sage, lemon freshness and a subtle but insistent yeast. This is gorgeous, slender, savory and utterly moreish. Drink by 2040.Wine Enthusiast | 96 WEAlways the first 1er cru that is ready to be bottled (in July), the 2019 Kammern Ried Renner 1ÖTW displays a radiant lemon-yellow color and opens with a beautifully clear, bright, intense and elegant, remarkably refined and distinctive bouquet of broom blossoms intertwined with flinty lemon aromas of crushed stones. Everything is perfectly intermingled and gives that distinctive, elegant and refined, dense and calm style. The attack on the palate is vibrantly fresh and still nervous (vinified in an old five-hectoliter oak vat), but the wine develops a dense, complex, finely salty and structured mid-palate with a long, intense and persistent finish that reveals fine tannins and characteristic salinity. This is an impressive Renner. 13.5% alcohol. Tasted at Schloss Gobelsburg in June 2021.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 95 RPI love the precise balance of this rich and complex (also texturally) gruner veltliner, which glides over the palate, until you reach the tannins at the finish. Lovely white-fruit and delicate-spice aromas. Excellent aging potential. Drink or hold.James Suckling | 94 JSThe Erste Lage ‘Renner’ is located at the bottom of a smooth hill, featuring loess and loam soil with washed down minerals. Fermented with natural yeast and aged in used oak, the ‘premier cru’ Grüner has a nose of candied orange peel, yellow apple and apricot. Oily-textured with mineral smokiness on the palate, with concentrated lime, apricot and green apple flavours, spiced by the classic white pepper notes. The finish is warm and honeyed.

2020 manni nossing gruner veltliner Italy White

The 2020 Grüner Veltliner is more savory than sweet with crushed rocks, musky pears, apricots and hints of flint. This is round and soothing, displaying a pleasant inner sweetness and vivid ripe orchard fruits balanced by saline-mineral tones. The 2020 tapers off long and staining, yet also lightly-structured, leaving hints of candied lime. There’s great potential here.Vinous Media | 93 VM
