Although the exact origins of the grape are unknown, records of its existence date as far back as Roman times. One parent is known to be Traminer, the other remains unknown.

    A really nice, complex and mineral nose. Good acidity - peaches and very mineral. Held up well over time, and was good even on the second night. Served with salmon and couscous. Read More

  • Being in Australia, I can see that 'traditional' varieties are starting to take a step aside and "new ones" are enjoying some popularity... Ex. Carmenere from Chile, Sangiovese from Italy, Tempranillo from Spain, etc... what is (you guys in the US) in your experience the dynamics that the market is experiencing at the moment? and the trends that...

  • Ecker Grüner Veltliner Wagram 2010


    Very light "slim" with an easy finish. Good with light foods like fish or poultry. 1L bottle is also nice enough to drink by itself. Slightly dry on the back end, but no pucker. Read More

    still very hard tannins, as 2005 wasn´t a good year for the red wines of this region. Too much extraction and new wood. Will hopefully melow in 3 or 4 years but overall not a big wine. Read More

    My first Gruner Veltliner. Will not be the last. Stunning for the price. Great lime and gooseberry but surrounded by a steel-y tone rather than a grassy one. Really impressive QPR here Read More
