2018 - James Suckling

  • Gewürztraminer '17

    92 points
    A very pretty gewurz, offering dried apricots, sliced lemons and hints of cloves. Medium-bodied, dry and polished with an almost velvety texture. Drink now.
  • Terlaner '17

    93 points
    This really captures the mountain freshness of this Alpine region and the minerality of the stony soils of this appellation, and marries them with extremely attractive citrus fruit and just the right amount of creaminess. Long, very pure finish. Drink or hold.
  • Pinot Noir '17

    90 points
    Bright blueberries, raspberries and rose petals. Light body, fresh acidity and a fruity, mineral finish. Drink now.
  • Müller Thurgau '17

    91 points
    Pomelo, green apples, blossom, green paprika and pear drops. There’s some real texture and depth to the palate, but also plenty of acidity to carry it through to a bright yet quite fleshy finish. Drink now.
  • Pinot Bianco '17

    92 points
    This pinot bianco combines depth and vitality and has very attractive lemons with hints of wild herbs. More racy drive, length and minerality than most wines of this category. Drink now with light summer food.
  • Lunare '16

    94 points
  • Gries '15

    93 points
    What an enticing bouquet with blueberries, balsamic, dried bay leaf and Thai basil. Medium-to full-bodied and quite edgy with tangy acidity and a streak of fresh blue fruit. Drink now.
  • Chardonnay '17

    93 points
    The purity of fruit this offers is very impressive with lemons and limes, green apples and chalk. The palate has just the concentration you would want to back it up and the finish is bright, floral and medium-long. Drink now.
  • Pinot Grigio '17

    92 points
    With its melon, lemon and floral nose this is a very attractive, ripe and subtle pinot grigio. The pristine finish is lively and long. This should be easy to pair with all manner of food, except for super spicy dishes and highly reduced sauces. Drink now.
  • Kreuth '17

    94 points
    This is quite an opulent expression for a 2016 Alto Adige chardonnay and shows dried grapefruit, pomelo, apricots and blossom. The palate has the same kind of intensity but adds driven and precise acidity to the mix. Finishes long and elegant. Drink now.
  • Porphyr '15

    94 points
    There’s a heap of concentration on the nose of this with brambleberries, hot stones, blackberry essence, eucalyptus, pressed lavender and violets and vanilla. The palate is very sophisticated with chewy tannins, some well judged, balancing acidity and a long finish. Drink in 2020.
  • Pinot Bianco 2005 '05

    96 points
    This deep and complex, maturing wine is proof that pinot bianco can give wines as great as any chardonnay. Concentrated and delicate with remarkable vitality for its age. A very long, smoky and mineral finish. Drink or hold this almost timeless masterpiece.
  • Terlaner I Grande Cuvée 2015 '15

    96 points
  • Quarz '16

    94 points
    Enticing nose, floating from aromas of grapefruit, white pepper and spices to flint, dried-papaya and pineapple notes. Medium-to full-bodied with layers of stone, green and even tropical fruit and a long finish. Phenolic yet zesty and vibrant. Always one of Italy’s great white wines. Drink now.
