We were thrilled when we met up with Eric Haas earlier in the year, and tasted through their wines prior to him catching a plane home. Thrilled not only because the wines were really good but also because we were his last appointment… and Mrs R and I got to keep the remains!
We have gone with 3 of his wines – in truth we could have bought them all. Here is the ‘Hasel’ Gruner Veltliner from a single vineyard, all handpicked but later into early October: hence it offers more weight and structure but without losing its balance of acidity, a real delight. Drink now and over the next few years. 12.5% vol.
