2010 Grüner Veltliner Federspiel, Im Weingebirge, Nikolaihof


$35.00 per Bottle


1 Bottle




"An April 2017 bottling of the same cuvée whose first half was bottled in the summer of 2011 and released immediately thereafter, this represents in effect a semi-Vinothek offering, yet at a scarcely higher price than was asked for the initial bottling. There were initially 2,000 liters, so this wine was racked once, into a 1,000-liter cask. It features the same 11.5% alcohol and concomitant sense of buoyancy as did the corresponding 2016, and as have so many other Nikolaihof Federspiele. A delightfully intriguing nose offers moss, snuffed candle wick, wet stone, lemon zest and fresh green bean. There is a subtly creamy feel on the palate, which also offers a reprise of the mature elements found on the nose. Piquant artichoke and hazelnut, richly nutty raw spinach and iodine-tinged shrimp shell add to the complex savor of a juicily sustained finish." David Schildknecht, Vinous.com

"Bottled in April 2017, the 2010 Im Weingebirge Grüner Veltliner Federspiel offers a coolish and matured bouquet with apricot and spicy seed aromas. Full-bodied, lush and elegant yet still a bit astringent and animalic on the finish, this is a fine and elegant Veltliner with grip and tension, but it still needs some years in the bottle. Tasted from lot 277911 at the Nikolaihof in September 2019." Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
