95 Points Chopped apples, fresh herbs and pears here, with some creamy peach too. Lovely fruit-forward, silky nature, medium- to full-bodied, with youthful energy and beautiful balance.

95-96 Points Tasted as a sample, the 2021 Ried Stein 1ÖTW Engabrunn Grüner Veltliner offers a deep, fresh and flinty/stony bouquet of ripe fruits and smoky bacon. Full-bodied, rich and dense on the palate, this is an opulent but elegant, fresh, savory and salty Veltliner with spectacular grip and tension. A fascinating wine.

Stein is actually a vineyard that Bernhard farms that’s in the Kamptal, specifically the village of Engabrunn. Bernhard’s village of Feuresbrunn is right on the border of Kamptal and the Wagram and Bernhard has roots in these Engelbrunn vineyards going back to his Great Grandfather who started farming these sites in 1889. Stein means stone and as the name would suggest, this vineyard is loess with a lot of gneiss. It might remind you more of the wines from Renner than the heavy loess wines from Rosenberg, which recall the Lamm more than any other site. Long maceration here in the press prior to natural fermentation in steel. Winemaker Description.
