Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner Bergdistel Smaragd Austrian White Wine 750 mL


rated 94 points Wine Enthusiast

“Lemon zest, white pepper and soy savoriness on the nose promise spice and concentration. It is on the textured midpalate that the saltiness spreads, highlighting shimmers of white pepper, crushed sage and yeast. While the core is rich and buffered, the body of the wine remains fluid, slender and taut. A class act. ” –ANNE KREBIEHL MW

The Wine

This wine is an explosion of pleasure straight out of the bottle. A blend of vineyards from Weisenkirchen and Loiben, it has a crazy good range of complex pleasantries that are developed in the confines of stainless steel. The soils are mostly composed of the great acidic bedrock (which they refer to as “primary rock”) gfogel gneiss, and a bit of loess.

Uni, iodine, marine salt, gardenia, sweet mint, cassis, black pepper, peanut brittle, and sweet green melon make for an intensely complex set of aromas that leap from the glass—all within the first seconds of smelling it! This wine relentlessly infiltrates your senses and commands your attention until the last drop is gone. It’s unapologetically extroverted with the addicting charm of a great storyteller, loaded with deep mineral, metal, and powerful rock notes. Simply put, this is awesome stuff. If there is a Bono, or Mick, in the range of Martin’s wines, this is it!
