  • 2020 Kamptal Grüner Veltliner, LoimerWhite Wine

    2020 Kamptal Grüner Veltliner, Loimer

    £1695

    This wine is a vibrant yellow in colour. Aromas of yellow apple, pineapple and marigolds fill the nose with gentle hints of white pepper. The palate is structured and precise with notes of lemon jelly, dried apple, pear pulp and juicy oranges, balanced by refreshing acidity and some saltiness. The finish is citrusy, long and robust.

    Fred Loimers wines are among the very best examples of Gruner Veltliner and Riesling in Austria, biodynamic since in 2006, all Fred’s wines are also vegan and vegetarian.

    Situated 200 to 400 metres above sea level, the climate of the Kamp Valley is characterised by cool nights and warm days, with a long, sunny autumn. The high summer temperatures are mitigated by the River Danube and the Waldviertel (forested area). The long growing season and the difference in temperature between night and day gives the grapes a chance to reach full ripeness and develop fine perfumes and flavours. The grapes for this wine are grown in fine, old vineyards around Langenlois and nearby areas, at a density of 2,500-5,000 vines per hectare. 80% of the vines are grown in loess soils and the remaining 20% in weathered gneiss soil, and are guyot trained.

  • 2020 Gruner Veltliner ‘Johann’ Federspiel, Weingut Johann DonabaumWhite Wine

    2020 Gruner Veltliner ‘Johann’ Federspiel, Weingut Johann Donabaum

    £1795

    A fabulous, concentrated wine with apple and lime characters combined with white pepper, cardamom and spicy minerality. Balanced and refreshing.

    The Grüner Veltliner vines are grown in the Wachau, the most prestigious viticultural area in Austria. The vineyard is located on the steep terraces of the Spitzer Valley with proximity to the Danube. The temperature variation in the valley, with warmer days and cooler nights, has a significant role to play in the ripening of the berries. The vines are grown in Gneiss soils, made up of schist and granite with a high mineral content.

  • 2015 Red, HeinrichRed Wine

    2015 Red, Heinrich

    £1995

    The easy-drinking entrance ticket to Heinrich’s world of wine is presented in velvety, deep ruby-red. Red-berried fruit, in particular, crisp cherry is the central element of this light-footed blend of the local varieties Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt and St. Laurent. This is accompanied by subtle tobacco, peppery notes and thorough juiciness. Sophisticated simplicity is the focus of this cool red wine and simplicity indeed demands mastery. Despite the warm vintage, this wine excels with fruit opulence, moderate alcohol, and subtle tannin as it refreshes with herbal spice and nervy acid.

    The “red” is sourced from both sides of the Neusiedler See (Lake Neusiedl). On the west side, vines are rooted in the limestone and schist of the Leithaberg (Leitha Mountains) slopes – on the east side of the lake vines in the gravelly Parndorfer Platte (Parndorfer Plain) and humus-rich Heideboden.

  • 2016 Zweigelt, HeinrichRed Wine

    2016 Zweigelt, Heinrich

    £2195

     If you’re a lover of Beaujolais or Valpolicella then this Austrian Red made from 100% Zweigelt could be the one for you.   In the UK we drink very little Austrian red wines and the Wine Republic team are guilty of that as well BUT we we do we are always pleasantly surprised by how good they can be, and this Zweigelt from Heinrich is one of those wines.

    The vines of 2016 bequeathed grapes with extraordinary finesse.  In the glass you will find a dance of cherry aromas from morello to wild.  On the palate the tannins are fine but catchy. Despite all finesse and cool elegance, one attribute remains at the heart of this Zweigelt: pure juiciness. To allow this mouth- watering juiciness to flow unhindered, serve best at 15-16° C.

  • 2013 St. Laurent, HeinrichRed Wine

    2013 St. Laurent, Heinrich

    £2250

    Fragile fruit meets filigree texture. In between and beneath are multiple layers that are successively revealed. St. Laurent is a wine of nuances; its strengths are in found details. It is adverse to intrusiveness and seeks attentiveness. Behind all the elegance are delicate smoky aromas, subtle floral and berry notes and a playful lightheartedness that is paired with expressive depth.

    The grapes for this wine stem from both sides of the Neusiedler See (Lake Neusiedl). On the one side from the Rosenberg vineyard, an east-facing slope of the Leithaberg (Leitha Mountains) in Breitenbrunn that is intensely marked by mica-schist. On the other side, from vineyards on the gravelly Parndorfer Platte (Parndorfer Plain) and the humus-rich Heideboden on the east side of the Neusiedler See (Lake Neusiedl).

  • 2020 Riesling Spitzer Federspiel, Weingut Johann DonabaumWhite Wine

    2020 Riesling Spitzer Federspiel, Weingut Johann Donabaum

    £2350

    An enchanting wine delivering distinctive aromas of peach and apricot. Crisp, with pure varietal character echoed on the palate, this refreshing wine has an excellent structure and a lively finish. Lovely Riesling expression.

    The grapes come from the Spitz vineyard in Western Wachau. The vines are grown on steep hillside terraces which make up several vineyards in the Spitzer Graben. The vines are planted with a south western orientation. Cooling breezes help to keep the climate temperate. The soils are very sandy and have high heat retention properties. The soil’s composition is the result of weathering of the local rocks and it is dominated by pegmatite and calc-silicate gneisses, which have low water retention and help to impart structure to the resulting wine.

  • 2015 ‘Bisamberg’ Wiener Gemischter Satz, WieningerWhite Wine

    2015 ‘Bisamberg’ Wiener Gemischter Satz, Wieninger

    £2550

    Wieninger is named after winemaker and owner, Fritz Wieninger who in is regarded winemaking pioneer in wine circles.   Amongst many other great wines, he makes this a traditional Viennese white called Bisamberg Wiener Gemischter Satz.  

    The problem for us Brits is understanding what this means!   Well Gemischter Satz means ‘mixed set’ as this wine is a field blend from a single vineyard, ‘Bisamberg’.   The vineyard is planted with 40% Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), 40% Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) and 20% Chardonnay. This unique style is a field blend of varieties which are grown, picked and fermented together, showing the individual characteristics of each vineyard rather than of a specific variety.    Pressed gently, then fermented with spontaneous yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The Bisamberg vineyard is Bio-certified and considered among the finest of vineyards in the region.

    “I try to use the numerous facets of my grape material,” says Fritz, “to be able to show the differences in site and vintage and to get the character of the vineyard into the bottle — this is my greatest challenge.”

    The nose is aromatic with scents of light, smoky grapefruit, ripe stone fruit and a soft yeast nuance. The palate reveals a full-bodied, yet elegant wine with a fine acidity structure. It is harmoniously balanced and already very approachable.

  • 2015 Pinot Noir Select, WieningerRed Wine

    2015 Pinot Noir Select, Wieninger

    £2950

    Fritz Wieninger’s Pinot Noir Select shows the bright aromatics and juicy flavours one might expect from the cool climate and limestone-clay soils of Vienna. Aromas of red cherries, red plums, dried flowers, and savoury herbs feature on the nose with ripe red fruit, smoked meat, and refined tannins on the palate. Very Burgundian in style.

    Pinot Noir Select comes mainly from the Bisamberg as well as a vineyard on the Nussberg. Fritz believes Vienna’s cooler climate and limestone-clay soils provide the best conditions for Pinot Noir in Austria. The grapes are destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks before aging in 25% new Burgundian pièce for 18 months. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration.

  • 2018 Pinot Noir Select, WieningerRed Wine

    2018 Pinot Noir Select, Wieninger

    £2995

    Fritz Wieninger’s Pinot Noir Select has an expressive nose, with ripe red and black cherries, along with a delicate spice undertone. The palate expresses ripe plum and mineral notes, good acidity and soft, playful tannins. Highly elegant, more than medium bodied and very Burgundian, this Pinot Noir has great finesse and potential for ageing.

    Weingut Wieninger is comprised of 50 hectares of biodynamically-grown vines on two main sites: Bisamberg (35 ha) and the smaller Nussberg (15 ha), separated by the Danube river. Drier and sunnier Bisamberg is characterised by light, sandy loess soil which makes for fresh wines with vibrant acidity. In contrast, Nussberg has shell and limestone soils with a high clay content, giving wines with greater richness and deeper fruit aromas. The grapes for the Pinot Noir Select 2018 are mainly from the Bisamberg vineyard that has an average of 20 percent less rain, and 20 percent more wind and sun compared to the Nussberg site, resulting in very fragrant and expressive red wines.
