Julia Harding kindly tasted our wines for www.jancisrobinson.com. These are her results:

17/20 Points Gr. Veltliner Reserve HOMMAGE 2018
Even more spicy than the Golden 2018 and the fruit riper as well: ripe pear verging on exotic fruit and still lots of spice and zesty white pepper that seems to add a stony/mineral quality to the nose. On the palate, spicy and powerful, with a slight alcoholic sensation entwined with that spiciness. Mouth-filling and with a slight but harmonious tannic grip, a more oily minerality on the finish. A big, broad wine that is more about power than finesse. A very long, warm, spicy finish, almost fiery but there’s surprising freshness too on the finish. On the second day, it had developed a nutty aftertaste that I think might come from the acacia. (JH)

17/20 Points Gr. Veltliner Reserve GOLDEN 2018
Pale, gleaming gold. Richly spiced and smells like burnished gold, metaphorically speaking. Ripe yellow fruit but peppery too. Fills the mouth with almost honeyed citrus flavour, though it tastes pretty dry, the spice joining in on the finish. Broad and textured, almost chewy, full-flavoured and just balanced by the acidity, the spice on the finish seeming to add to the freshness. Very persistent. (JH)

17/20 Points Riesling Reserve PASSION 2018
Pale gold. Rich, ripe intense aroma of lemon, clementine, yellow plum and spice. Powerful, deep and spicy on the palate, more apricot than citrus. It tastes pretty dry thanks to the fresh acidity. Already complex and yet promises more with another year or so in bottle and should age well over 5–10 years, depending on your personal taste. Full-bodied but vibrant, and very long with a lovely spicy but fresh aftertaste. (JH)
