This estate has remained in the same family since 1792. Bertold Salomon returned to take up the mantle from his older brother Erich in 2002. Von Stein Grüner Veltliner comes from two small plots of eroded rocky soils producing a wine of lovely minerality and intensity that starts out quite austere. Another fine Grüner comes from old vines in Lindberg, the lower part of Wachtberg. The terraces of Kögl provide fine Riesling with extra depth and concentration in a Reserve that is in essence a very pure, elegant style. While Salomon’s 20 ha of vineyards are almost exclusively Grüner Veltliner or Riesling, a little Gelber Traminer is also made. A very attractive wine, it combines good fruit intensity with a mix of spice, floral and lychee characters.
