External Reviews for Weingut R and a Pfaffl Gruner Veltliner
Hundsleiten Gruner Veltliner 2007/ There’s good definition to the peach and baked apple flavors, which are flanked by lots of light, spicy notes. The finish is rich and creamy.
Hundsleiten Gruner Veltliner 2005/ There is some wood here, particularly to smell, but it forms a seasoning for the intense concentrated flavors. Mandarin oranges and some smoky minerality are mixed in a creamy, rich blend. An impressive wine.
Hundsleiten Gruner Veltliner 2008/ A bold Grüner Veltliner, with spice and minerality to go with the rich fruit. There is a steely edge that suggests the wine needs a year’s aging to bring on greater richness. Big and impressive.
Hundsleiten Gruner Veltliner 2007 - 89 Points, International Wine Cellar/ Pale green-yellow. Refreshing aromas of yellow currant, grapefruit, apple blossom and pepper. Elegant and juicy in the mouth, with mineral-laced lemon and grapefruit flavors dominating. A very nicely balanced, moderately long wine with the acidity and backbone for further development.
Hundsleiten Gruner Veltliner 2006/ Delivers a combination of smoky, toasted nut piquancy and herbal, lemon zest pungency. Faintly bitter peach kernel, cherry pit, pistachio, pear, and toasted almond mingle with herbal infusions, mineral dustiness, salinity, and perfume, leading to a complex layer of flavors and a long, intriguing but at the same time generously refreshing finish. This is an outstanding candidate for enjoying anytime over the next 8-10 years.
Hundsleiten Gruner Veltliner 2007 - 92 Points, Wine Enthusiast / The Hundsleiten vineyard is on the last slopes of the Weinviertel looking across the Danube Valley. With its great exposure, it produces a rich style of Grüner, with added structure and minerality. In 2007, the vintage exposed the terroir, giving a flinty edge to the still-rich character.
