• Yellow peach, celery salt, white flower and crushed rock
• Historic winery introduced dry wine style to Austria and co-founded Vie Vinum
• JamesSuckling.com: 94 Cool with a lot of minty freshness, this is powerful but sleek with a plenty of mineral energy and a very long, crystalline finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
• Wine & Spirits: 94 Lindberg sits between Wachtberg and Kögl, a parcel of loess over primary rock. In 2017, it produced a stunning grüner veltliner, powerful yet precise. The variety’s spice sparks the sweet fruit flavors—white peach and pear notes riding over a rich earthiness—while the acidity keeps everything knit tight. The flavors last with a deep umami savor, the glycerol richness of the wine providing a good foil for lightly bitter foods, like braised endive.

• Wine Enthusiast: 93 Pear peel, lemon zest and lemon balm combine into a nose of ripe greenness. The palate is concentrated and has that lovely edge of mandarin zest that enriches the yeasty texture with juicy, vibrant freshness. This is mouthwatering, tense and moreish.
