A Trio Plus One

A Trio of Austrian whites...three different grapes...and a nice aged red from Germany.

Weingut Alphart Rotgipler Rodauner
Top Selektion 2010
Thermenregion, Austria

Yellow fruits...honey melons...quite full...even an up-front sweetness...an exotic Austrian with broad texture...I would have liked more minerals...
Points 16.5


Polz Sauvignon Blanc Hochgrassnitzberg Reserve
Große STK Lage 2007
South Styria, Austria

Always trying to be original with tasting notes...this was easy. Wham! Bam! Kapow!...like a super-hero cartoon.
An aroma full of spiky grapefruit....extreme peaches...lovely balance...spicy oak...smooth as silk. Wham! Bam! Thank You Mam!
Points 17.75



Tegernseerhof Riesling Smaragd
Steinertal 2009
Wachau, Austria

Peaches and petroleum...blood oranges...stone fruits...has a sprightly feel...but will age beautifully
Points 17.5



Meyer-Näkel Spätburgunder 2005
Ahr, Germany

Perfect now...that slightly mouldy smoke...more attractive than it sounds...taste of caramel...laying back and relaxing with it's age...
Points 17.25
