From 30- and 42-year-old vines and vinified in traditional 20- and 25-hectoliter oak vats for one year and another six months on the fine lees in stainless steel, the 2017 Ried Hochgrassnitzberg Sauvignon Blanc HG –G STK–...   From 30- and 42-year-old vines and vinified in traditional 20- and 25-hectoliter oak vats for one year and another six months on the fine lees in stainless steel, the 2017 Ried Hochgrassnitzberg Sauvignon Blanc HG –G STK– displays a clear, refined and crystalline, spicy/herbal nose with yeasty notes and elegant, discreet and quite ripe fruit. On the palate, this is a round, lush and intense, charmingly fruity and very elegant HG Sauvignon with a lot of power, grip and complexity. This is a great, complex, crystalline, salty, tightly woven and very persistent Sauvignon with a great character. Tasted in May 2019, which was four weeks after the bottling.

Smoke and notes of grilled hazelnut play about the creamy apricot fruit on the nose. The creamy palate still breathes some of that smokiness but mellows out into a lovely, creamy, concentrated display of apricot, lemon...   Smoke and notes of grilled hazelnut play about the creamy apricot fruit on the nose. The creamy palate still breathes some of that smokiness but mellows out into a lovely, creamy, concentrated display of apricot, lemon brightness and cream. The finish adds zestiness. While this is exciting now, some bottle age will round it out. Drink now–2035. ANNE KREBIEHL MW

This rich and ripe sauvignon is still rippling with fresh grapefruit and candied-citrus character, plus touches of rosemary and sage. Quite a serious tannin structure is wrapped in the generous and rather rich body...   This rich and ripe sauvignon is still rippling with fresh grapefruit and candied-citrus character, plus touches of rosemary and sage. Quite a serious tannin structure is wrapped in the generous and rather rich body. Enough acidity to keep this clean at the long, dried-herb and mineral finish. Drink now.
