Salomon-Undhof Grüner Veltliner Erste Lage “Wachtberg” 2018
The Salomon-Undhof estate dates to 1792, and is currently in its 7th and 8th generation, father and son Bert and Bert Salomon. Their terraced vines overlooking the Danube have long been an excellent source, with the country’s preeminent wine guide calling them a “figurehead of Austrian wine history.” Their style is what you’d expect from 225 years of history — clean, polished, and refined.
It shows the same fleshy dryness as the Wieden, but with more depth and complexity. The nose is more spiced, with notes of grape skin and aromatic bitters. The Wine Advocate’s reviewer agreed, awarding 90 points and finding it “round and creamy,…elegant and piquant,” not to mention “intense and gripping.”
