The Wines!!

Steininger Cabernet Sauvingon Rosé Sekt 2016  

Yes it is made with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Beautiful pale salmon color, delicious fruit filled with raspberries, strawberries and also cassis.
Produced like the top rose Champagnes, but a fraction of their price tag.  
Medium bodied, elegant and a long aromatic refreshing on the finish.

       Perfect aperitif Sparkling wine for a holiday dinner or just to drink with friends!!

Strauss Chardonnay Gamlitzberg 2015                    

This Gamlitzberg Chardonnay has an exotic aroma with taste of mango and banana.                                 
The acidity is perfectly integrated and balanced.
Hand harvest, grape and single berry selection, fermented in temperature controlled large Hungarian oak barrels. 
Friendly, pure notes of freshly cut yellow apples have a minty, fresh aspect that enlivens nose and palate.
This is fresh but comes with softened, slightly rounded, creamy edges.
A very friendly, clean-cut light-footed but full-fruited Chardonnay showing some lovely midpalate texture and lots of freshness.

Tscherne 18 Ried Hundsberg Sauvignon Blanc 2018   
Südsteiermark DAC

The many years of knowledge and experience of farming this single vineyard has been drawn upon to create a wine that displays the marriage of terroir, history and the human hand. 
The wine rests on its lees for 6 months in used large barrels before being bottled.
Crisp and full -bodied with a citrus palate and a lengthy finish.

Tegernseerhof Grüner Veltliner Bergdistel 2017 Smaragd® 

 The Bergdistel Smaragd® is a blend of the lower terraces of the different Cru’s in Loiben and Weissenkirchen.
The combination of coolness, maturity and vitality of this Grüner Veltliner finishes in a shining elegance and full of finesse!
Intense, concentrated wine, which packs spice, ripe pineapple and apricots and a final floral character that fills the mouth.  
The result is one of the most elegant and balanced Smaragd® Grüner there is.   
“Lemon zest, white pepper and soy savoriness on the nose promise spice and concentration.
It is on the textured mid-palate 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.”

Heinrich Hartl Pinot Noir Classic 2016            

90 pts.
“A gentle vanilla note wraps itself around ripe, red cherry on the nose, with a slight touch of smoky mocha.
The palate combines these flavors and presents them on a juicy palate held firm by a fine mesh of tannins. This has bite and ample freshness.”

The Heinrich Hartl Classic Pinot Noir 2016 comes from the Kräutergarten vineyard's alluvial soils with high limestone content.
Its aromatic nose offers ripe cherry fruit, raspberry compote and a subtle smoky note, which comes back in the finish redolent of cedar and tobacco.
This is a year round food friendly red that is ready to drink, but will develop further over the next 2-3 years. 

Leo Hillinger HILLSide 2016 

organic     60% Syrah, 10% Merlot, 30% Zweigelt 
A dark ruby color with purple rim, the nose showing a combination of fruit and spice of blackberries, raspberries and cherries underlined by black pepper.
Topped up with velvet flavor of cloves. On the palate the above flavors are supported by delicate roasted flavors with perfect harmonic acidity.
The discreet wooden flavors support the perfect tannin structure lasting in a long finish.
Selection of best vineyard sites.     
Decanter 94pts.

Anton Bauer Blaufränkisch Reserve ”Artist” 2015  

Dark ruby with nearly opaque core, violet highlights and a thin, transparent rim.
