89/100 Punkte Robert Parker August 31, 2018 The medium-pink 2017 Cotes du Rhone Rose La Dame Rousse is another top example of this cuvée. It offers raspberry, pear and melon flavors, a plump, medium-bodied mouthfeel and a long, citrusy finish. Crisp and clean, it should be consumed over the next several months.
90/100 Punkte Robert Parker December 2018 The intensely straw-yellow colored 2017 Ried Superin Grüner Veltliner Federspiel is ripe and elegant on the intense but fine nose. Bottled in June 2018, this Federspiel is very elegant and fresh on the palate, where just one gram of residual sugar gives a clear and stimulating character. The grapes for the Superin were harvested during the second half of September, so quite early, which gives the 2017 its stimulating character. Tasted in Dürnstein/Wachau, September 2018.
90/100 Punkte Vinous September 2017 Bright straw. Lemon and green papaya on the perfumed nose. Then fresh and saline, with lemony bite to the fresh orchard fruit flavors. Finishes long and juicy. Made with Nerello Mascalese vinified as a white wine (in other words, without any skin contact). (12.5% alcohol).
90/100 Punkte Robert Parker April 2018 The balsamic and fruit-driven 2016 Gotes Blanques is an unoaked Garnacha Blanca from the village of La Morera de Montsant at 650 meters in altitude. It fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and was partly aged in cement vats. It's very fresh and delineated, with very good acidity and focused, pungent flavors and a mineral finish.
91-92/100 Punkte Robert Parker August 2017 Coming from gneiss soils covered with white and red sand and finally loess, the 2016 Engabrunner Stein 1ÖTW is Ott's one and only Kamptal Grüner Veltliner. Intensely citrus-colored, the wine opens with a clear and flinty bouquet of perfectly ripe white fruits and exciting citrus aromas. Round, finessed and elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, complex and mineral Veltliner with intense and lingering fruit aromas that are almost tropical. Although the 2016 is a bit too sweet for my taste, and also lunch or dinner, it is well structured due to the fine acidity and perfectly integrated minerality. Mind, though, that as soon as the CO2 has disappeared, the wine will taste sweeter than in the beginning. Tasted as a sample at Schloss Gobelsburg in July 2017.
95/100 Punkte James Suckling A very distinctive grüner veltliner from the flinty nose through the sleek and sinuous body to the intensely mineral finish. Made from biodynamically-grown grapes. Drink now. Screw cap.
