Why keep drinking same old, same old red wines, I ask myself. Just cracked open an Austrian St. Laurent…

Andert St Laurent 2008. Dark violet. Bouquet of cinnamon clove roasted almonds and dried fruit. Elegant flavors of leather, spiced plum and black tea. Firm tannins. At 13.5 % it has an almost port-like quality. Cornucopia of Autumn in a glass! Very long finish. July 19, 2010. – Posted using MobyPicture.com

Best Sauvignon region in the world? I think so! South Styria, Austria. Experiencing its fresh aromas right now in the back yard. Elegant expressions of pear, citrus, hint of gooseberry & spice in near

Wohlmuth 2009 Sauvignon Blanc Klassik. Bursts with clean liveliness! From South Styria (Süd Steiermark), the area noted by the Masters of Wine as the benchmark for greatness and varietal correctness. This one is among the most elegant white wines we’ve seen. – Posted using MobyPicture.com

What IS it about the nose of a Grüner Veltliner that makes it 1 of the most fascinating whites in the world?

One of the most charming sensory experiences your nose will ever come across. Candied pear, apricot, grapefruit, honeycomb, spice and sensuous Summer! An experience. – Posted using MobyPicture.com
