stress ...

Due to our harvest preparations I was not able to write another post. But tomorrow is our harvest start 2009 with beautiful ripe (and most important healthy) St. Laurent grapes. I will keep you up to date with the harvest in Burgenland and will take some nice pics too.
In the mean time I have tasted some interesting wines.

1. Grüner Sylvaner "Ried Kögl" 2008 from winery Hofbauer-Schmidt - good/very good
bright yellow hue, fresh and fruitforward, bit spicy, lemon, lime flavors, hints of grapefruit and stone fruits, good acid structure, but rather short palate, flinty texture, good balanced.

2. Riesling Smaragd "Terrassen" 2008 from winery Domäne Wachau - very good
yellow hue with green reflections, pure stonefruit, peaches and apriocots on the nose, bit loessig with good acid structure, exotic fruit bunch on the palate, sugar melon and again apricots.

3. Grüner Veltliner "Grub" 2007 from winery Schloss Gobelsburg - delicious
golden yellow hue with green reflections, tobacco, bit smokey, melon and some more exotic fruits on the nose, caramel and butterscotch, bit spicy, oak perfectly integrated (maybe big barrels), quinces, good mouthfeeling, lingering.
