Austria


Zantho Zweigelt Zantho Zweigelt $15.50

Andau, Burgenland lies on the eastern side of Austria, bordering Hungary. An area studded with lakes along with a cool climate and rocky, gravelly soils. All this goes into creating unique wines, this Zweigelt is no exception. Exuding minerality and an earthy forest floor nose, complemented by cranberry, blueberry and black fruits. Refreshing acidity and soft tannins, this wine is easy to pair with a variety of foods!



Sohm & Kracher Sohm & Kracher $16.00

Austria does many things well, Gruner Veltliner is definitely included in that list. A gorgeous high acid white with delicate floral aromas, minerality, stone fruits and white pepper on the palate. One liter bottle making this an excellent value buy!



Stadt Krems Gruner Veltliner Stadt Krems Gruner Veltliner $18.00

Wine from the Kremstal hills of Austria. Amazing minerality with a body that is light, crisp, and dry. Lovely flavors of lemon, citrus and green apple. If you don't know this grape or have only had ones with little character, try this one for a game changer, this is a big favorite of the staff and one of the only wines that can pair with salad!



Kracher Beerenauslese Kracher Beerenauslese $27.00

Forget Sauternes! Few producers have achieved the worldwide recognition that Kracher has got. A specialist is dessert wine, this one in particular showcases Zweigelt. Beautifully sweet, still with amazing acidity, it shows baked cherry notes, dried stone fruits and honey. This can go toe to toe with Chateau d'Yquem.



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Tintero Moscato

    #1 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.
