Pale straw in colour with a minerally, white pepper and pear nose; medium-bodied, dry, elegant, well-balanced pear and citrus flavours. A versatile food wine.
Elegant floral scents with stone fruit and varietal white pepper on the nose yield to luscious, delicately ripe peach and apricot flavours backed by stony mineral and deftly balanced acidity. Citrus and stone fruit notes linger on the finish.
Nikolaihof is the oldest wine estate in Austria and credited with being the first biodynamic estate in the world. Herbal-led, this Grüner streams with creamy lees, flax, hay and mineral salts throughout. All the cushion of this amply textured Wachau white is cut with stony minerality, and streams with an oily sheen. Generous spicy white pepper and salts linger on the finish. Let this open up and stretch its legs before you enjoy.
I’m a great fan of Austria’s Grüner Veltliner – a dry white wine that can match a variety of dishes. Pale straw in colour, it has Grüner Veltliner’s characteristic nose of white pepper and green peach. This wine is medium-bodied, dry, beautifully balanced, with apple and pear flavours and a great mouthfeel. It’s the kind of white wine that improves with bottle age.
Tropical fruit aromas with tart apple flavours and pleasant acidity all the way through. Lifted and refreshing with a firm backbone, finishing dry and mouth-watering.
Bright and spicy with wild plum, cherry and blueberry flavours and notes of anise; a supple, fresh and minerally finish with hints of pepper. Delicious with roasted quail.
