Tasting Notes

One of Austria’s true icons of BF, it shows as much graphite as three bottles of Brunello you’d somehow concentrated, forced into a syringe and injected intravenously. I love this wine in “moderate” vintages like ’13; it has a truly noble fragrance; it would do high honor to Cheval Blanc, if you’d steeped it with violets and grape-hyacinth. The palate is riven by its acidity and tannin, which isn’t to say that either is too overt or extreme. A swollen minerality comes on and clings and clings; the empty glass is pure ripe kirsch, and with air the whole thing deepens into winter truffles, and the texture grows appealingly juicy. – Terry Theise
