Why do we love this case?

The hills are alive with the sound of post-prandial snoring, mofos. The original ‘Aussies’ have it good. Bloody delicious wine at great value. No wonder not much of it makes its way over here. Crafty buggers drink it all themselves. Well we took advantage of their schnitzel-and-gruner-induced fuzzy-headedness to sneak a few cases across the Swiss border and, from there, direct to mofos Down Under. It was the least we could do. Here’s six white delights to sample for yourselves!

Every case contains one of each of the following:

White
Gruner Veltliner
Austria

Allram Renner Grüner Veltliner 2017
Melon
Orange
Quince
Medium-bodied
Bright
Concentrated
Decanter World Wine Awards 2019
Single vineyard

This grüner doesn’t hold back so I won’t muck around either. Last vintage saw a linear and restrained style. This year? Well, hang onto your little wool hat and hold out your glass, because it’s all about the fruit. It’s weighty and rich with all the colours of the fruit bowl. Quince, fresh pear and ripe stone-fruits splash out on to the mid-palate with a juicy, and moreish fruit sweetness, thanks to the warmer growing conditions of 2017. A wine with this kind of fruit profile runs the risk of over-ripeness, but not here. Hints of vibrant blood orange acidity and a slight minerality keep the balance right where it should be. Lees-derived texture and minerals that speak of the terroir add levels of complexity that keep you sifting for more gold - and this wine is very willing to oblige.

There’s fresh yellow peaches - fuzz and all, a smidge of orange sherbet too. Ground ginger and baking spices leave a lingering warmth that takes me back to the Christmas markets in Innsbruck and the smell of fresh baked krapfen - elderflower scented doughnuts filled with custard. Time on fine lees brings characters of biscuit crumbs and semi-hard cheese rind, keeping the wine grounded and with one foot in savoury territory. There’s a familiarity that keeps creeping in and I put it down to a limey-ness akin to Bickfords Lime Cordial. There’s a healthy dose of citrusy acid, but we’re saved from an enamel-stripping pH by a satisfying balance of richness and ripeness.

There’s a perfumed ethereality but at the same time, a level of weight and complexity seldom achieved by rieslings grown outside of the EU. The fruit comes off two of the top sites in Kamptal - Gaisberg and Heiligenstein, steep, south and south-west facing sites which have earned the status of “Erste Lage” - Austria’s answer to Grand Cru. Unique soils each add their own signature and the amphitheatre-like slopes capture the sun, allowing exposure for optimal ripeness. There’s a slight reductiveness, similar to the smell of fresh rain on asphalt, but it’s fleeting, while the talcy minerality lingers. Now we are officially in riesling territory and notes of lychee, apricot and jasmine flower take over. They’re subtle and in check, which allows the citrus driven acidity to flow seamlessly from start to finish. She’s a stunner and has the genes to age gracefully if given the chance. I know it’s hard, but I promise you’ll thank me.

Zippy, bright and flavoursome, this Austrian rizza will have you singing from the hills. Lemon and grapefruit are its signature flavours, underlined by a nice dose of Alpine minerality. Dry and refreshing, this’ll be instrumental in willing summer into being. A chilled glass of this with cut through even the cloudiest day and send the sunshine streaming in.

Something peculiar happened when I tasted this. Let me explain… I’d poured myself an (albeit generous) tasting sample of this gruner. I had my laptop ready, swirled the vino, gave it a whiff and started to write. “Seine ausgeprägt fruchtige und sehr präsente Nase…” Hang on minute, that’s odd. Let’s take another sniff. “...Aromen von grünem Apfel und Pfirsich wird subtil umschmeichelt vom Duft blühender Akazien.” My notes felt different, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on why. Let’s try tasting. After a sip, a slurp and a swirl, I got, “Am Gaumen ist der Högl J&G Grüner Veltliner Hauswein wunderbar frisch und lebendig, mit gut eingelagerter Fruchtsäure. Mineralische Salze legen sich auf Lippen wie Zunge und sorgen bei diesem Hauswein für ein sortenreines und gebietstypisches Geschmackserlebnis.” Bloody hell, that’s odd. I don’t even speak German. Be warned about drinking this in English-speaking company, mofos. You may find yourself Austracised.

They say - “We seek uniqueness, distinctiveness as well as complexity, with a close contact to nature in our wines.” We say - “These guys know their s#!t when it comes to aromatic wine and we are here for it.” Equally aromatic and concentrated, this wine shows fabulous varietal expression with all the nuances you’d expect to find - citrus and florals, but with slightly more depth than your average grüner. Think mandarine blossom, musk sticks and fresh ginger, but with scratchings of graphite and a grüners signatory backbone of lengthy acidity that drives it all the way home. It’s a step above their entry level but this wine takes steps two at a time and shows no sign of stopping. Sashimi with extra pickled ginger please!
