Top 10 wines in the US press

2011 Nikolaihof Hefeabzug Grüner Veltliner Wachau

NikolaihofIn the LA Times, Irene Virbila picked out this wine, writing: “Think organic or biodynamic wines are relatively new? Meet the Nikolaihof estate in the Wachau region of Austria, where wine has been made — organically — for close to 2,000 years. The Nikolaihof family is so committed that it serves only organic food at its farm restaurant on the property. The Wachau region north of Vienna is known for its Grüner Veltliner, and Nikolaihof produces some of the best. This 2011 Hefeabzug (aged on the lees) is crisp and refreshing, mineral-driven and with the characteristic aromas of green apple and white pepper.”

In terms of matching the wine with food, Virbila added: “You can drink this terrific summer white with chilled shellfish, smoked trout, lobster and crab. Seafood pasta and risotto too. It’s also a great match with Thai or Indian food.”
