Description

When I tasted it I almost violently did not want to write a tasting note. It is a perfect vintage of this great, great Cru, and that’s all that needs to be said. The vineyard lies at the foot of the Gaisberg, on eroded gneiss with a lot of paragneiss, mica and amphibolite, all under a blanket of loess. Its wines are as good as the Lamm, which is a warmer site giving wines of greater amplitude and stature. Yet the quality of flavor and complexity of nuance are incomparable from Renner, and I had it next to the Lamm just to make sure I wasn’t being diddled by my subjective preference for minerality.

The 2015 Ried Renner 1ÖTW offers a rich and perfectly ripe but still fine, elegant and flinty bouquet. The attack on the palate is fresh and piquant; the second impression is rich, ripe, juicy, pretty round, a bit sweet and intense due to the rich extract. However, the freshness does not move and takes the vintage on its wings, carrying it to a long and nicely tannic but also pure and salty finish. This is great Grüner Veltliner with food, even though it is a bit biter on the finish at the moment. – Stephan Reinhardt – 31-08-2017

Notions of ripe stone fruit are tempered by the herbal savor of arugula and watercress. There is something incredibly ripe at play, combined with something incredibly fresh. There also is a lightness of touch and a limpid intensity. The palate displays all of these things and adds a salty moreish element of yeast. What a wonderful, authentic expression of Grüner. Bravo!

This installment of Moosbrugger’s Renner – last tasted soon after it was assembled in June 2016 ahead of midsummer bottling – was raised 70 percent in casks. The cooling green herbal and crunchy snap pea elements found in the corresponding Steinsetz are accentuated here, and the fruit takes a more northerly, not to mention brighter, turn, incorporating ripe muskmelon, but favoring white peach and rhubarb. An underlying savor of tobacco and lentil lends mouthwatering low tones to the proceedings. There is a flatteringly silken texture and an abundance of glycerol, but this is sleek in comparison with the Steinsetz. Cress and pepper are allied to a remarkable array of crystalline, alkaline, stony and saline mineral elements on a vibrant finish that milks the salivary glands and leaves the tongue tingling.
