The 2016 Ried Kellerberg Grüner Veltliner Smaragd is clear, fresh and aromatic on the nose, provided with tropical as well as flinty-mineral aromas. Pure, piquant and salty on the palate, this is a well structured and terroir-driven Kellerberg that is a bit more juicy and tannic than the corresponding Riesling. The lingering salinity is really stimulating. However, I would cellar this Grüner Veltliner for another 8-10 years. Tasted as a sample in July 2017. (Wine Advocate)

Domäne Wachau is that rarest of things, a producer of significant volume of wine who also manages to produce some of Austria’s finest wines. Situated in the stunning Wachau valley, through which flows the Danube river, Wachau is the coolest vine growing region of Austria and the combination of warm days, cool nights and ancient, rocky soils create wines of precision, minerality and fantastic purity of fruit. While the region is undoubtedly endowed with significant natural advantages to produce fantastic wines, much of it’s recent success – including winning 4 trophies at the IWC – must be attributed to the dynamic young team at the winery headed by Roman Horvath MW and the winemaker Heinz Frischengruber. The team have also made a vital contribution to the preservation of this UNESCO world heritage site. The dramatic, steep, terraced vineyards make it a challenging place to grow vines and without their efforts, many of the vine growers would have abandoned the vineyards, losing in the process centuries of tradition as well as many of Austria’s top viticultural sites
