A Six Bottle Case Containing 1 x Each Wine
Grüner Veltliner ‘Klassik’ 2020
When you think of Austria, you think of Grüner Veltliner, and this is a delicious, classic example. With distinctive aromas of core of ripe apple, quince, and hints of peach. The rich texture is well balanced by the juicy yet lively acidity. It is fresh, vibrant, peppery and a perfect pairing for fish, seafood, and poultry as well as the traditional cuisine.
Grüner Veltliner ‘Ried Schneiderberg’ 2019
From one of the Estate’s top single vineyard plots ‘Ried Schneiderberg’. This is a denser, more intense Grüner Veltliner with deep rich fruit and a broad range of aromas and flavours all whilst remaining pointed and elegant, with incredible freshness and vibrancy, and a minerality from the soils here that offsets the pepperiness perfectly. The wine perfectly accompanies grilled fish, deep-fried dishes like the famous Austrian “Wiener Schnitzel”, but also grilled white meat such as chicken or veal.
Riesling ‘Ried Kugler’ 2015
Weinrieders expression of Riesling is ofcourse fruit driven and aromatic, as Riesling should be, however it is also an incredible pleasant mineral expression, with elegance, purity and delicate acidity. Rich and full on the palate, with an abundance of ripe fruit flavours of honeyed baked apple and hints of tropic fruit. herbs in the background as well as traces of nuts and tobacco, light mineral, very good, juicy, and spicy finish. Perfect with Pates and Asian Food!
From Alex Pfluger:
Cuvée Biodynamite 2017
Alex Pflugers, Cuvee Biodynamite, is an explosive off-dry, very aromatic, and deliciously juicy wine. An ancient combination of Riesling and Gewurztraminer, this wine fully envelops the palate with zesty citrus and peach, accompanied by plenty of floral and herbaceous character and welcome mineral notes to bring it back down to earth. It owes its fine minerality to the sandstone and quartzite soils of the region. It’s very moreish, with fantastic length and vivacity. A perfect introduction to the lively style of Alex’s biodynamic wines!
Blanc de Noir 2018
A different direction entirely from the Biodynamite, Alex’s Blanc de Noir is far more delicate and refined, made from Pinot Noir. A short contact between juice and skins has resulted in a wonderfully soft rose colour. It is gentle and fragrant on the nose with aromas of quince and Mirabelle plums, followed by an elegant, juicy, and elegantly structured palate of strawberry-like fruit and a hint of sherbet. The crisp acidity makes it superbly balanced. A common thread through all of Alex’s range is the accompanying herbaceous character and minerality adding complexity, depth, and life to all his wines.
Riesling Durkheimer ‘Buntsanstein’ 2015
A tropical fruit extravaganza! A wonderful expression of a classically German style of Riesling, deliciously intense, zesty, and racy lemon, green apple, and white peach, combined with a clearly delineated minerality. Mouth-watering, with a perfect balance between its rich, sweet fruit and acidity, if you love Riesling, look no further!
