95 POINTS: James Suckling

"Intensly herbal, but also subtle with very interesting smoky and sweet vegetal (think snow pea and chickpea) notes. This is a powerful but graceful wine that has great, citrusy and mineral freshness running through it. Stunning finish that leaves no doubt. Great aging potential. Drink or hold."
— 95 Points, James Suckling

Distinguished & gripping from the start, already astonishingly complex & multifaceted, associations range from lime & ginger to red berry fruit, extremely juicy & distinctive, with a high factor of recognition; simultaneously rich & finely grained: a powerful physique with sweet extract and a wide array of flavors, downright chocolaty generosity, but also packed with dark, spicy fruit and flowing beautifully – above all characterized by the finesse that heralds the development of a great Lamm.

The vineyard site is located on the south-eastern slope toe of the Heiligenstein mountain, and is one of the warmest sites in the wine-growing region. The soil which is calcareous and loamy, has derived from the underlying loess. In the higher parts of the vineyard, towards the Heiligenstein mountain, siltstones and sandstones of the Zöbinger formation, which contain little or no lime, reach close to the surface. Grapes from this site reach a high degree of ripeness and concentration, which bring a generous expression more generally associated with Burgundy varieties. While “Lamm” is the quintessence of a monumental Grüner Veltliner, it abandons the lightness and prickle that Grüner Veltliner usually stands for.
