Wine Enthusiast, July 2015
Distinct botrytis notes of dried apricot and musk for now dominate the nose while the primary fruit still sleeps in this dry, still-closed wine. The palate is sleek and flowing, while the backbone of acidity sits upright... Distinct botrytis notes of dried apricot and musk for now dominate the nose while the primary fruit still sleeps in this dry, still-closed wine. The palate is sleek and flowing, while the backbone of acidity sits upright and straight. This uncompromisingly dry wine will not reveal its true colors until at least 2017. Hold onto it until it can shine with subtly spiced, delicate dishes. The length it already possesses promises a great future.

Clear, deep and dense, but multilayered on the nose, the 2013 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Loibner Steinertal displays herbal-scented notes of legumes and super-ripe as well as concentrated Veltliner berries. Full-bodied... Clear, deep and dense, but multilayered on the nose, the 2013 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Loibner Steinertal displays herbal-scented notes of legumes and super-ripe as well as concentrated Veltliner berries. Full-bodied, powerful and rich, but also very elegant and fresh with finesse on the palate, this well-structured, mineral wine is already accessible but should gain even more finesse with further bottle age. - Stephan Reinhardt

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, November 2015
Site-typical sweet/smoky pungency of Szechuan pepper mingles in the nose with high-toned almond extract and intimations of muskmelon, apple and papaya that go on to inform an expansive palate. Cooling green herb... Site-typical sweet/smoky pungency of Szechuan pepper mingles in the nose with high-toned almond extract and intimations of muskmelon, apple and papaya that go on to inform an expansive palate. Cooling green herb inflections lend lovely counterpoint to the impression of tropical fruits, resulting in a soothingly sustained though also subtly peppery finish. -- David Schildknecht
