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

For over four thousand years, Austria has been home to some of Europe's finest wines, with a strong domestic wine industry which is beginning to be once again recognized for its world class quality. All over the eastern part of the country, and even in the capital, Vienna, small wineries are working with the grape varietals which flourish in the country's hot summer climate and mineral rich soils, fed by the Danube and other great rivers which cross the flat lands of this part of Austria. Most commonly, wineries work with the Grüner Veltliner grapes which grow so well here, and produce the dry and elegant white wines which typify Austria's viticultural produce. However, many other fine grape varietals are grown and used for a wide range of wine styles, including some extremely interesting sweet white wines similar to those found in neighboring Hungary.
