94/100 Punkte Falstaff Rotweinguide 2019 Dunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Duft nach dunkler Waldbeerfrucht, ein Hauch von Weichsel und Veilchen, feine Kräuterwürze, zarte Brombeernoten, etwas Kardamom. Saftig, gute Komplexität, elegant, eingebundene Tannine, Herzkirschnoten im Abgang, frisch strukturiert, bleibt sehr gut haften, sicheres Entwicklungspotenzial.
92/100 Punkte Robert Parker December 2018 From lime-sandstone and mica schist soils, the 2015 Leithaberg Weissburgunder opens precise and crystalline on the rather reductive but challenging nose. It is lush and juicy on the palate, where it displays a firm mineral but also tannic structure and some discreet oaky flavors toward the finish. This is a round, creamy and very persistent Pinot Blanc with lingering sur lie aromas. It is very elegant but still very young. Tasted October 2018.
95/100 Punkte Falstaff Weinguide 2017/18 Helles Gelb, Siberreflexe. Mit einem Hauch von Feuerstein unterlegte zarte gelbe Kernobstnuancen, ein Hauch von Orangenzesten, dezente Mineralität. Saftig, elegant, angenehmer Würzecharakter, integrierter Säurebogen, zitroniger Touch im Abgang, zart nach Birnen im Rückgeschmack, tolles Reifepotenzial.
94/100 Punkte Robert Parker April 2016 Tement's rare 2013 Weissburgunder Zieregg (total production: 1,500 bottles) is sourced from 30-year-old vines and fermented and aged for one year in pièces, before the wine is racked into two 700-liter barrels until the bottling in May 2015. It is a great Austrian terroir wine, very intense and pure on the nose, highly elegant and noble; it is almost aristocratic in its lemon, chalk and crushed stone flavors. Full-bodied, rich and piquant, this is a gorgeously mineral Pinot Blanc full of finesse and power. Its length is as terrific as its tension. A great wine, ready to challenge the finest white Burgundies. This Zieregg wine will be released later this year. Drink between 2017 and 2028.
92+/100 Punkte Robert Parke Jun 2016 The 2012 Zagersdorf Sankt Laurent is still discreet on the nose and offers smoky notes along with cedar and fine cassis aromas. Full-bodied, concentrated and intense, this is a powerful and silky textured Blaufränkisch with great finesse, tension and intense fruit aromas. The 2012 is more meaty, fruity and round than the 2013, but does not have the precision, tension and tightness of the successor. The finish is still a bit rough.
92/100 Punkte Robert Parker December 2018 Even lighter in alcohol than the 2016, Schuster's 2014 Zagersdorf Sankt Laurent was bottled with 12% alcohol and offers a pure, fresh and stony nose of sour cherries, underwood and spicy/flinty notes. Silky, pure and fresh on the palate, this is a straight, taut, fruity (cherry) red with a tight, somewhat austere but well-concentrated finish. Coming form 55-year-old vines, this is a quite concentrated, complex and mineral St Laurent that is beautiful to drink and even to pair with fish. Very stimulating. Tasted October 2018.
88/100 Punkte Robert Parker December 2018 From different vineyards and soils on the shores of the Lake Neusiedl, the 2016 Burgenland Zweigelt is pure, fresh and bloody on the fleshy nose. Dark cherry and floral notes lead to a medium-bodied, fresh and silky-textured palate that reveals stimulating purity and mineral freshness. This wine is straight and tight but also transparent#a lovely and refreshing red! Tasted October 2018.
91/100 Punkte Wine Spectator, Nov 15, 2018 This graceful red exhibits fresh acidity that cuts through the dense flavors of plum, blackberry and wild herbs. Features soft, well-integrated tannins, which are focused by the acidity. The spicy, mouthwatering finish expands over the palate and invites you for another sip. Drink now through 2024.
