This is the wine by which many of you know Nikolaihof, and yet it is atypical for them; all steel, bottled off the gross lees, it is another gesture of vitality and energy than they usually display. This '17 has the customary flavor of oyster shells, but the palate is really exciting; the spiciest element of lees and a zingy, straightforward briny charm.

Wine AdvocateSourced from many different vineyards, the 2017 Grüner Veltliner Hefeabzug is Nikolaus Saahs' "Steinfeder" class. Bottled straight from the fine lees in April 2018, this is an elegant and fresh, pretty intense and mouth-filling Veltliner with a subtle mineral background on the nose and a lingering mineral structure in the serious and persistent finish. Still very young, the wine benefits a lot from aeration. Tasted from lot LN1107618 in September 2018.
