Professional Wine Reviews for Wieninger Nussberg Alte Reben 2013

Rated 93 by Decanter
Tank-rendered from a field blend of Pinot Blanc, Neuburger, Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner, Sylvaner, Zierfandler, Rotgipfler, Traminer and Riesling, this September bottling delivers an explosively aromatic and invigoratingly piquant impression of pip- and pit-tinged pear and peach further accented with anise, celery seed, smoky black tea and white pepper. There is a background suggestive of greenhouse-like scents, Normandy pear cider fruitiness and chalk. Full (at 14.5% alcohol) and expansive, this nevertheless proves almost infinitely juicy, finishing with superb grip, animation and clarity and no trace of heat. (The strikingly mineral but surprisingly less succulent 2012 is lovely today, while the long-celebrated, now faintly Chablis-like 2005, also retasted alongside the 2013, displays encroaching old-wine tones. So I wouldn't defer the pleasure of enjoying this 2013 soon and doubt it will be notably long-lived.) (Galloni)

Additional Information on Wieninger Nussberg Alte Reben 2013

Winery: Wieninger

Country: Austria

Austria is a fascinating country when it comes to wine production, and with a wine culture that stretches back over four thousand years, it is one of the oldest viticultural centers in the world. Today, it is the Grüner Veltliner varietal grape which is the most widely grown and processed, producing elegant dry white wines, and very flavorful and aromatic sweet wines enjoyed to a great extent by local communities, and which are beginning to receive the recognition they deserve by the global wine market. Austria's eastern flatlands benefit from fertile and mineral rich soils, fed by the great river Danube, as well as the long hot summers the country enjoys with low precipitation. Today, over fifty thousand hectares of Austrian land is under vine, and even within the city limits of Vienna, high quality wine is produced and enjoyed.
