Founded in 1792 Salomon Undhof is a wine estate with a long tradition. The Salomon family own 20 hectares of vineyards with equal amounts of Riesling and Grüner Veltliner as well as a tiny amount of ‘Gelber Traminer’ on the best-terraced sites along the Danube River in Stein and Krems.
A most amiable wine. It is perfectly balanced with lots of white and green fruits, floral notes and more. It is a complete wine now but will keep its peak for a long time yet.
Salomon Steinterrassen Kremstal Riesling 2015 Wine Review
“The purest notes of ripe lemon zest are the first to rise from the glass, then comes a slight notion of yeast—so fresh is this wine. There is a savoury timbre on all this gleaming citrus sleekness, adding extra interest and verve. Utterly linear and driven, this will relax into a sleek, sound beauty with just a little more bottle age. Ready from summer 2016 and for at least a decade after.” 92 points. Anne Krebiehl MW.
North East of Wachau and slightly bigger at 2243 hectares. There are three distinct zones in Kremstal. Once again Riesling and Grüner dominate production for very good reason too.
One of the world’s most noble varieties and known transmitter of terroir. Riesling is an important variety for quality wine production although only makes up approximately 4% of the planted area. Find wonderful Riesling in Germany, Austria, Alsace and Australia. They can be as dry as any wine you’ll taste or super sweet and luscious. It is a wonderful grape. See more about Riesling here.
