I can count the number of Austrian wines that I’ve had on one hand but tonight had the 2007 Steinsetz along with a wonderful dinner at a great neo-Indian restaurant (Amaya Bread Bar - if you visit Toronto and want great Indian with fresh ingredients and modern interpretation of traditional recipes, this is the place).
What a delicious wine. It had a captivating nose that could have been a cross of sauvignon blanc, viognier and possibly pinot gris. The palate was both rich, smooth (almost creamy as a first impression) but had crisp acidity, liveliness and minerality for the finish. There was just a hint of sweetness that helped pair this so nicely with the food.
Really a nice change of pace for me and certainly a 90+ point wine.
