Wine Advocate 88 points - Lentil, lime and cress inhabit a glossy, juicy palate in the intro-level Stadt Krems 2012 Gruner Veltliner, which nicely demonstrates how analytically low acidity and high ripeness in this vintage by no means precluded levity and refreshment. The finish here is succulently, satisfyingly sustained, integrating invigorating cut and piquancy. Enjoy this through 2015. (Unfortunately, I missed-out on tasting this estate’s 2012 Weinzierlberg bottling.)  (Apr 2014)

Wine Enthusiast 88 points - This is a ripe, open and fruity wine, that’s still very fresh and crisp. It has fragrant apple flavor, soft texture and a bright and juicy core that radiates a rounded character with finishing acidity. Screwcap. (Sep 2013)

Wine maker notes
Stadt Krems Wachtberg is made from 100% Gruner Veltliner grapes grown in the Wachtberg vineyard. The mighty terraces of Wachtberg belong to the Weingut Stadt Krems since the 12th century. Wachtberg comes from watch (keep watch) from the Berg (mountain). The grapes are harvested in early November and then fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks before it is ready to take home and enjoy.

Technical notes
Alcohol: 12.5%

Established in 1452, the original purpose of this winery was to provide revenue for the hospital in Krems. The estate-bottled wines of the city’s own winery have always been a source of pride for its residents, but over the years the winemaking itself became perfunctory and lacked distinction - until the arrival of the current team in charge of the winery. During those lesser years these wines were passed by as young winemakers in the zone pushed for higher quality in the wake of the 1985 diethylene glycol scandal. Since 2003 many Stadt Krems vineyards have been replanted and revitalized and the cellar has undergone a renovation and expansion. Fritz Miesbauer and his young, ambitious team now craft their wines in the stainless steel tanks of a pristine but technically simple cellar. With a compact range of six offerings sourced from a variety of soils and handled by careful and adept managers, the wines display both the minerality and the juiciness of the Kremstal.
