Weingut Stadt Krems:
Historically, Weingut Stadt Krems arose from two sources. The first source is the property of the Bürgerspitalstiftung - In 1210, Duke Leopold IV of Babenberg founded a public hospital in Krems and left important legacies to it, including vineyards. The second source was the generous bequest of the imperial Burggrave of Krems, Ulrich von Dachsberg, who presented the town with vineyards in 1452.... Read more
Historically, Weingut Stadt Krems arose from two sources. The first source is the property of the Bürgerspitalstiftung - In 1210, Duke Leopold IV of Babenberg founded a public hospital in Krems and left important legacies to it, including vineyards. The second source was the generous bequest of the imperial Burggrave of Krems, Ulrich von Dachsberg, who presented the town with vineyards in 1452. With over 550 years of history, Weingut Stadt Krems is one of the oldest wine-producers in Austria, and even in the whole of Europe. The clash of the Western Baltic oceanic climate with that of East Pannonia leads to an exciting interplay and strong climatic variations between day and night, and all that in a narrow space, but the mighty Danube helps to balance them out. Naturally, the vegetation is affected by such sharp variations in temperature and this proves to be very beneficial for winegrowing: it is precisely such conflicting climatic influences that give the wines their fruity taste and bouquet. Hours Monday to Friday 9:00-12:00am and 1:00-5:00pm Saturday 9:00am-1:00pm Read less

Bright straw, with wet rock, green veggie nose that leads green rind, green apple and wet stone notes, solid acidity, focused with a lengthy finish. Great value for a great food wine. Try it with arugula salad with apples, walnuts and goat cheese!

This comes from a 30-hectare estate that is owned by the city of Krems. It is full of clean, dry, fresh, herbal Grüner Veltliner fruit. Lithe in texture, this is quite simply a pretty wine, and it makes an excellent match for seafood dishes.

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.

Intense, with concentrated flavors of ripe pear, baked apple, apricot and spice. The long finish features lemon curd, spice and meringue. Drink now through 2015.

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.
