2013 Leindl Gruner Veltliner Seeberg - 90 PTS - W&S

wine and spirits logo 250"Georg Leindl founded this estate in 2013, after several years of renting space at Nigl to make wines. He owns about 12 acres, including five in Seeberg, a vineyard of sand, clay and slate in Langenlois. Those vines channeled the warmth of 2013 into a veltliner that’s juicy with ripe orange, pear and tropical fruit flavors. It’s a little peppery, too, balanced for bold dishes."

2013 Leindl Gruner Veltliner Seeberg - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Rich, low-toned and, like its non-vineyard-designated counterpart, dominated by root vegetables accented by pepper and dark leafy greens, this adds a mouthwateringly Traminer-like note of bacon and hints of caramel as well as stimulating tartness and tang of rhubarb. These elements synergistically combine with the stony and peppery inflections of the wine’s impressively long, sappy, deeply savory finish. (“Warm years can occasionally turn Grüner Veltliner Traminer-like,” notes Nigl, adding, “In a blind tasting, I once mistook one of my own for a Traminer.”) - David Schildknecht"

2013 Leindl Gruner Veltliner Seeberg - 92 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 92 pts"Ripe stone fruit notes, especially aromatic Mirabelle plum, rise from the glass, alongside more evolved chamomile tisane scents. With its slight bottle age, this shows where evolution can lead Grüner Veltliner. The palate retains its zesty, salty savoriness yet is wonderfully concentrated. Juicy Mirabelle reappears on the long, savory finish."
