Nikolaihof 2017 Hefeabzug Grüner Veltliner Wachau

Nikolaihof 2017 Hefeabzug Gruner Veltliner Wachau

Cherry blossom, anise, flint; zingy with dense minty mineral, light but curiously dense, jammed with flavor.

Wine Spectator - 93 Points
Multilayered and idiosyncratic, but focused and precise, exhibiting plenty of fruit and spice flavors, with pumpkin spice, cinnamon, passion fruit and lavender notes, balanced by a well-defined structure. Combines concentration and grace, showing the potential to improve over time.

James Suckling - 90 Points
Very attractive summer-meadow nose. Light and crisp with just a touch of tannin supporting the finish. Where are the oysters? From biodynamically grown grapes. Demeter certified.

Wine Advocate - 90 Points
Sourced from many different vineyards, the 2017 Grüner Veltliner Hefeabzug is Nikolaus Saahs' "Steinfeder" class. Bottled straight from the fine lees in April 2018, this is an elegant and fresh, pretty intense and mouth-filling Veltliner with a subtle mineral background on the nose and a lingering mineral structure in the serious and persistent finish. Still very young, the wine benefits a lot from aeration.
