Food Pairings for Weingut Stadt Krems Grüner Veltliner Lössterrassen
So wonderfully drinkable, as my friend Allison would say. Smooth from beginning to end, excellent mineral notes, the barest amount of sweetness - like an almost ripe pear - somewhere in the middle. Would pair well with just about anything, but was excellent with the red meat we ordered it with. Plus, it has a glass cork - cool!!
External Reviews for Weingut Stadt Krems Grüner Veltliner Lössterrassen
This comes from a 30 hectare estate that's owned by the city of Krems. Full of clean, fresh herbed, dry Gruner Veltliner fruit. Lithe in texture and simply pretty. An excellent choice for seafood.
Austriarsquo;s signature white varietal excels in Kremstalrsquo;s loess soils. The Sandgrube vineyard faces southeast, which maximizes the vinesrsquo; exposure to the sun during the regionrsquo;s long, cool growing season. Stadt Kremsrsquo; winemaking history dates back 550 years. General manager Fritz Miesbauer and his team harvested the site in mid-October in 2006, resulting in a wine that balances ripe tree fruit with crisp acidity.
Crisp apple and pear aromas backed by smoky, leafy notes create savory complexity. This red is sleek and poised on the palate, its silky texture adding to its elegant feel.
If there is any fault to find for the price with Weingut Stadt Kremsrsquo; 2006 Gruuml;ner Veltliner Sandgrube it is that the wine is simply too concentrated for ldquo;into levelrdquo;! Green bean, lentil, lemon, and brine in the nose lead to a saline, bright, pungent palate and a strikingly sappy, faintly bitter cling. Although pushing 13% alcohol, we still get some sense of lightness and refreshment that one expects from this consistently outstanding value. While I was visiting at the end of June, incidentally, savage hail shredded the better part of the Sandgrube. But within 36 hours, poor Miesbauerrsquo;s demeanor had greatly improved, as growers were offering to sell him fruit to alleviate the inevitable shortage that this estate will have experienced in 2007.
Der Wein weist typischen Kremser Charakter auf. Trocken, fruchtig & leicht mit klassischer, würziger Sortentypizität. Ein unkomplizierter Terrassenwein! Pfeffrig-grasige Veltlinernase, lebhaft, frisch; feine kühle Gewürzhaftigkeit, nach Anis, Thymian und Efeu, absolut trocken, süffiger, herzhafter Jungwein voll übermütigem Elan.
Fresh and fruity; the aroma reminds on white currant, citrus fruits and the typically “Veltliner-Pfefferl”. The aromas are repeat also on the palate.
