2019 - James Suckling

  • Pinot Bianco 2006 '06

    97 Punkte
    This is really wonderful with dried apples, peaches and bitter lemon and cream and floral undertones. Full body. Layered and fulfilling. A wine aged 12 years in stainless steel vats before bottling in June 2018.
  • Terlaner I Grande Cuvée 2016 '16

    96 points
    This is very intense with cooked-apple, white-peach, mineral and cream character. Full-bodied yet agile and fresh. Lovely creamy texture, too. Drink now.
  • Terlaner '18

    93 points
    A subtle white with white pepper, thyme, citrus and quartz and other minerals. What this really trades in is minerality, whereby flinty and stoney aromas are conveyed in a linear streak of acidity. Medium-bodied and medium-long on the finish. Drink now.
  • Kreuth '17

    94 points
    This is a very serious white with kiwi and guava peel, introducing dried lemon rind and jasmine. Full-bodied and very oily, but trimmed into shape nicely by the direct acidity. Drink now.
  • Chardonnay '18

    91 points
    Fresh and fruity chardonnay with hints of cooked apples and stone. Medium body. Clean and bright finish. Drink now.
  • Gewürztraminer '18

    92 points
    Dense and layered with a waxy and almost dusty character to the smoke and dried-apple flavors. Full and dry. Flavorful. Fresh. Drink now.
  • Lunare '17

    93 points
    Dense and oily Gewurz with sliced dried apples, pineapple and smoke. Almond skin. Full body. Lots of flavor. Extremely rich. Drink now.
  • Lagrein '18

    91 points
    Bright and fruity with lots of violets and dark cherries. Round and vibrant on the medium-bodied palate and very juicy on the finish. Drink now.
  • Gries '16

    93 points
    A reserved lagrein offering a bouquet of pebbles, forest floor, fresh herbs, black pepper and brambleberries. Edgy and spicy on the medium-to full-bodied palate, that boasts a plethora of juicy tannins and a ton of dark fruit. Drink now.
  • Porphyr '16

    96 points
    You rarely, if ever, see this level of complexity in a lagrein, which goes headlong through bracken, tea leaves, vanilla, blackberries, undergrowth, heather and violet extract. Full-bodied and very structured indeed, the chewy tannins envelop layers of compact yet exuberant dark fruit. Elements of undergrowth and spice linger on the long finish. Stunning. Delicious now, but better in 2022.
  • Lagrein Rosé '18

    91 points
    This is a fun, darker-colored rosé that still shows plenty of fresh notes, including raspberry fool, citrus and spices. Medium-to full-bodied with lots of crunchy fruit and some zippy acidity on the finish. Drink now.
  • Müller Thurgau '18

    90 points
    Aromas of sliced fennel and spearmint to the lemons and pears. Medium body. Crisp acidity and a flavorful finish. Always enjoyable. Drink now.
  • Pinot Bianco '18

    91 points
    Fresh flowers and sliced apples with some smoke. Medium body, crisp acidity and a creamy finish. Drink now.
  • Vorberg '16

    95 points
    Love the dried-flower and pie-crust aromas to the sliced-apple character. Full body. Very fruity and vivid. Flavorful finish. Excellent. This will change your mind about pinot bianco. Drink now.
  • Pinot Grigio '18

    92 points
    Sliced apples and cream, as well as hints of sliced pineapple on the nose. Medium body and a layered, creamy texture with green apples and limes on the aftertaste. Drink now.
  • Monticol '16

    92 points
    Aromas of blueberries and sliced lemons follow through to a medium body, fine tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Hints of caramel at the end. Drink now.
  • Pinot Noir '18

    91 points
    A silky and very polished young pinot with medium body, firm and fine-grained tannins and a clean finish. Better in 2021, but already beautiful to drink.
  • Winkl '18

    93 points
    Fun sauvignon with sliced lemons, limes and hints of grilled asparagus. Medium to full body and lightly oily texture to the rich fruit. Serious and rich sauvignon. Drink now.
