Variety: Grüner Veltliner
Country, Region: Austria, Krems
Appellation: Kremstal DAC

Lindberg is an Erste Lage classified vineyard in Krems, located between the vineyards Kögl and Wachtberg. The Grüner Veltliner vines here are over 80 years old and are planted on a soil of loess over slate in a cool, breezy meso-climate. The fruit was hand-picked, crushed and macerated for 12 hours, then cold-settled for 48 hours. Wild-yeast fermented for 8 weeks in stainless steel, then matured over winter on fine lees.

'Pale yellow-green. A delicate bouquet of yellow apple, grapefruit zest and hedgerow blossoms is repeated in the mouth. Brilliant refreshing acidity is in perfect harmony with the wine's sweet apple and apricot flavors. The extremely long finish displays picture-perfect varietal notes of apple and grapefruit laced with floral components and peppery spice.' 92 points, Peter Moser, Vinous, November 2007.

Salomon’s 2006 Gruner Veltliner Lindberg Reserve manages to live up to the high standard of last year’s rendition and that represents quite an achievement. Scents of lentil and grapefruit, with pungent hints of lavender, pine, and ginger, set the themes for a full and rich, yet bright, penetrating and mysteriously mineral mouthful of Gruner Veltliner, loess, and Urgestein. You can enjoy this anytime over the next decade, too. 91 points, David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate, June 2008

'Salomon Undhof is a figurehead of the Austrian wine history. White wines have been produced here from some of the best ‘Grand Cru’ locations along the Danube for 225 years. Well-known vineyards like Steiner Kögl, Pfaffenberg, Lindberg or Wachtberg … Thanks to Bert Salomon, the winery today mainly stands for excellent dry Rieslings and Grüner Veltliner - long-lasting, elegant wines for which the house is famous.' Peter Moser, Falstaff Wine Guide, August 2018.

Founded in 1792 Salomon Undhof is a wine estate with a long tradition. The Salomon family own 20 hectares of vineyards which are planted with equal amounts of Riesling and Grüner Veltliner as well as a tiny amount of Gelber Traminer on the best terraced sites along the Danube River in Stein and Krems. Today, seventh generation Dr Bert Salomon and his wife Gertrud are the custodians of almost 230 years of winemaking history.

Matching each grape variety with the right soil and climate has always been the main focus of Salomon’s viticultural efforts. Loess soils offer optimum conditions for the Grüner Veltliner planted on the Lindberg Erste Lage site, while the urgestein (primary rock) soils in the Erste Lage vineyards of Kögl and Pfaffenberg are ideally suited to Riesling. These are the same soils as those of the Wachau, which borders Stein to the west.

All the grapes are harvested traditionally by hand only. These great vineyard locations coupled with meticulous work in both the vineyards and the winery result in a range of wines with great power and complexity, yet with lovely finesse and a striking mineral personality.
