Nikolaihof’s holdings are some of the farthest east in the Wachau near the village of Mautern on the Danube’s south bank. These are also some of the oldest known vineyards in Europe with sites such as “im Weingebirge” being mentioned as far back as 470AD. Whether it’s Nikolaus biodynamic know-how, his focus on ancestral vinification techniques, or the quality of his terroir, the resulting wines are wildly unique and joyful. They are singular wines; irreplicable anywhere else in the wine making world.

Review:
A precise and very layered gruner, offering plenty of tropical fruit, such as mango and grapefruit. Flavorful finish. Already a beauty. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
