Dry, crisp, fresh and with lots of flavour, this exceptional single vineyard Grüner is a stunning example of this grape.
Marion Ebner left home at the tender age of 16 to begin her winemaking career with the highly respected Fritz Wieninger, but her big break came when she bought some Grüner Veltliner fruit from Schloss Gobelsburg and ...Learn more
“Apart from being young, beautiful, and lovely to boot, Marion Ebner is also one of the most exciting young winemakers in Austria – plus we love a bit of Girl Power! Her basic Gruner Veltliner is a brilliant example of the style – lean, mineral and elegant – but 'Bürsting’ is a big step up for a relatively small jump in price. Opulent and weighty, rich flavours of honeyed apples jump out of the glass. If anyone says that Gruner isn’t a serious wine give them a glass of this.”
“This still has all the hallmarks of fine Grüner: a stony, white-pepper quality to the citrus and a gentle herbal note and it has as well a mild and inviting creamy character from the oak influence. Firm in texture with a delicious orange-pith quality that is both flavour and texture. More power here than on the Hermanschachern and still beautifully balanced between fruit and texture. Long, tangy finish with a note of grapefruit in the fresh aftertaste. It may well age longer than I have suggested but it is already very good. ”
“Sourced from more than 50-year-old vines on deep loam terroir, the 2016 Grüner Veltliner Reserve Bürsting has a clear, deep and spicy bouquet with discreet white fruit at this early stage. Full-bodied and round, this is an elegant and well-balanced Grüner Veltliner with racy but well-integrated acidity and a salty-mineral finish. It is more powerful and robust at the moment than the Sauberg. The ripe pips give good grip and structure here. This Grüner Veltliner will also please Sauvignon Blanc lovers.”
“This wine is still young with a sharp edge that needs to soften out. An apple- and quince-flavoured wine, it has fine potential for ageing, to round out the corners and intensify in fruitiness.”
“Green beans and nutty, bittersweet, crunchy chard and spinach dominate this wine from a gentle slope of clay-rich loam. Underlying leanness is assuaged by glycerol, and although this lacks the penetrating brightness of its counterpart from the Hermannschachern, it boasts more than enough primary juiciness to an otherwise gripping, piquant, low-toned finish.”
