  1. Huber Auslese Riesling

    Huber Auslese Riesling 2013

    £14.00

    £14.00

    Bright yellowish green, hints of strawflowers and hay, very typical varietal character on the nose; dense with notes of caramel; dainty wooden nuances reveal traces of spice, clove cinnamon. This extraordinarily intense offering boasts with such an enormously sweet mellowness. Gorgeously focused and clean.

  2. Huber Grüner Veltliner Nussdorfer 2015 Austrian White Wine

    Huber Grüner Veltliner Nussdorfer 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    We think they should scrap the 'H' and just call this delectable white wine 'Uber' instead. No, it's nothing to do with the handy transport service. It's because this yellowy-green drop of drink is a supreme example of Grüner Veltliner. It shows outstanding peppery, herbal and yellow-fruit driven aromas and flavours so typical of the variety whilst presenting a dense and complex yet elegant palate.

    Ok, so it may be a bit much for us to ask Markus to change his name but that won't stop us shouting about how (H)uber-cool his wines are!

  3. Huber Riesling Nussdorfer 2014

    Huber Riesling Nussdorfer 2016

    £12.00

    £12.00

    Chalk. It's good stuff. Back in the halcyon days before white boards, school kids relied on chalk to learn about isosceles triangles and other incredibly forgettable items of information. However, chalk is responsible for something else that is much more memorable.

    Yes, the chalk hills of the Traisental in northern Austria give Markus Huber's Riesling vines a healthy work out as they plunge deeper in the soil in search of water. Along the way, they pick up characterful mineral qualities, which appear alongside the citrus and apricot notes in the final wine and chalk up another victory for this most learned of winemakers. 10/10.

  4. Kopfensteiner Blaufrankisch Red Wine

    Kopfensteiner Blaufrankisch Eisenberg 2014

    £14.00

    £14.00

    Thomas Kopfensteiner is oddly impressed by soil. So impressed, in fact, that he took over a patch of land in Austria because its soil was forbiddingly dense with clay. And then he was bowled over by another spot because its meagre-looking soil was full of slate and thick with iron deposits. It's hardly Gardener's World, is it? Yet by beavering about endlessly in all this gunge, he coaxed wholly natural and earthy grapes from the first patch, and concentrated and minerally fruit from the second.

    Alchemy! And then wizardry, as he put them together and hey presto! A beautifully-structured but juicy red wine, packed with fruit and speaking eloquently of the region whence it came. You wouldn't have thought, would you...?

  5. Markowitsch Rubin Carnuntum 2014

    Markowitsch Rubin Carnuntum 2014

    £15.25

    £15.25

    We love Question Time. The way David Dimbleby umpires as questions and answers are volleyed between irate the audience and wriggling politicians. So we'd like to play being DD, with an imagined audience and the maker of Markowitsch Rubin, made from the obscure Zweigelt grape...

    Audience: 'This wine is Austrian, you say?'

    Gerhard Markowitsch: 'Ja, we are a small but incredibly exciting win-producing country.'

    Audience: 'That's all well and good Gerhard, but what the jeffing heck are Zweigelt grapes and what do they taste like?'

    Gerhard: 'Well, it has the acidity and fresh red fruit of Sangiovese, with a bit more, how do you say, oomph?'

    Us: '*Peers over glasses* next question please...'

  6. Pittnauer Pannobile Red Wine Austria

    Pittnauer Pannobile 2013

    £25.00

    £25.00

    Pannobile is an association of nine Austrian winemakers, devoted to producing wines that truly speak of the soil, character and climate of their region, exquisite wines made entirely from local grape varieties. The "Pannobile" wine that each winery produces every year is its finest cuvée, entirely approachable in its youth but developing a great raft of flavours with age. Pittnauer Pannobile is a perfectly striking wine, already offering a density of aromas and flavours, ripe plums, juniper, orange peel and licorice. How it will develop in years to come we can only imagine!

  7. Pittnaeur Pitti 2015 Austrian Wine

    Pittnauer Pitti 2015

    £12.50

    £12.50

    If the Hammer Horror studios had made a film about wine it might have starred Zweigelt. A hybrid of the Blaufrankisch and St. Laurent grapes, it was created in Austria's Klosterneuburg wine research facility in 1922 by one Dr. Zweigelt, presumably on a stormy night surrounded by blue-sparking science things!

    Thankfully it escaped Vincent Price and is now starring alongside Julie Andrews, having become Austria's most popular and widely-grown red grape variety. It also makes up the larger part of this juicy, tangy, herb-driven red, as pleasing drunk on its own as it would be with most simple game dishes.

  8. Riesling Von den Terrassen BrundlMayer

    Riesling Von den Terrassen Bründlmayer 2016

    £13.50

    £13.50

    Is Bründlmayer Riesling the best food wine in the world? It has a touch of sweetness to match it with spicy. It has piquant acidity to pair it with fatty. Tangy citrus undertones to sit next to something fruity, and a pleasing minerality that will go well with herby. And all from just 42 hectares over some of the best Kremstal vineyards, made by a centuries old farming family from Grundorf. It all sounds like the beginnings of a fairy story. The seven dwarves might need a bit of work, mind you...

  9. Salomon Groovey Grüner Veltliner Austrian White Wine

    Salomon Groovey Gruner Veltliner 2016

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Once in while a wine comes along whose anonymity sells it to those who want to be drinking something that no one else is drinking. Now this doesn't always guarantee a good wine but in this case we have an absolute winner.

    Characterised by its own hallmark style but still crisp, dry, fruity and approachable this is a wine with really remarkable appeal. A dry white with that lovely hard-to-grasp balance that every white drinker wants. This fish deserves a bigger pond!

  10. Schauer Rosé Sudsteiermark 2016 Rosé Wine

    Schauer Rosé Sudsteiermark 2016

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Stand on the steep slopes of the Schauer vineyards and absorb the view. Breathtaking. A landscape with edges like cut crystal. But imagine 300 million years ago. An Earth in turmoil. Rock and oceans, molten minerals. A world growing into the shape we know it, suffering the agonies of adolescence.

    Of course, it would only look chaotic if you sped up millions of decades to play out like a film. But then, try this wine and you won't really get a sense of the chaotic alchemy that went into its making either. Three varieties roiling, mixing, berry fruit and spice aroma. Take a sip. Sense the swirl of time.

  11. Schauer Sauvignon Blanc Sausal 2016 Austrian White Wine

    Schauer Sauvignon Blanc Sausal 2016

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Look down from Schauer's vineyards - one of Europe's highest winemaking locations - and imagine: 300 million years ago, everything you see below lay beneath a prehistoric ocean; and where you're standing was an island. Mindblowing how things evolve.

    This wine is testament to that. Sauvignon Blanc from Austria! Planted on severe slate slopes, with uncompromising character. Minerality, Alpine herbs; and crisp and clean as mountain air. An extraordinary meeting of modern and ancient. Who said time travel is impossible? Just take a sip!
