Josef Jamek 2012 Ried Klaus Smaragd Riesling (Wachau)

  1. $75
Lifted ripeness and candied lemon peel send their aromas heavenwards. These rounded aromas with a fetching touch of bitter fir and honey also appear on the palate where acidity is present but cushioned. Like honey parfait spiked with lemon peel, this is lovely and lingers long.  — A.K.  (5/1/2014)

Rudi Pichler 2012 Wösendorfer Hochrain Smaragd Riesling (Wachau)

  1. $80
Powdery notions of white peony petals against a stony background suggest concealed aromas that need time to come to the fore. Right now the palate is tight, with buffered acidity at the core, long, lean and promising. Lime zest lurks amid suspicions of ripe peaches in a sherbety, lemony sharpness. The wine will blossom as of 2017.  — A.K.  (5/1/2014)

Rudi Pichler 2012 Wösendorfer Kirchweg Smaragd Riesling (Wachau)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $75
The tightly closed nose only gives away a little ripe red apple. Even with the fruit locked underneath the stones, the sleek power, the impression of saltiness and lime-zest purity of this wine whisper promises. These will be kept, at least if you wait until 2017. This one will last and last.  — A.K.  (5/1/2014)

Salomon-Undhof 2012 Alte Reben Berglagen Grüner Veltliner (Kremstal)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $35
Rich aromas of late summer are here: the ripe peel of yellow pears, luscious peach and yellow Mirabelle plum plus some dried hayflower notes. There is power and depth, along with some alcoholic heat and balancing acidity—beautiful now but it will get even better. Drink until 2020.  — A.K.  (5/1/2014)

Allram 2012 Gaisberg Reserve Grüner Veltliner (Kamptal)

  • Best Buy
Pear, arugula, white pepper and apricots take turns in dazzling nose and palate. A serious, concentrated and mineral vein of power also courses through this sleek wine, which holds even more future promise.  — A.K.  (5/1/2014)

Allram 2012 Heiligenstein Reserve Riesling (Kamptal)

  1. $23
A pure and spicy lift of bergamot promises refreshment while the palate whirls with peach, mandarin and blood orange. All are backed by a steely, mineral poise that cuts through the palate like a comet, shimmering with purity, deliciousness and length.  — A.K.  (5/1/2014)

Eichinger 2012 Gaisberg Reserve Grüner Veltliner (Kamptal)

  1. $30
Lifted, lemony freshness mixes with lime zest on the nose. Underneath some pungent arugula also dances on the palate, where pepperiness and fresh acidity guarantee pleasure with this concentrated but toned white.  — A.K.  (5/1/2014)

Eichinger 2012 Heiligenstein Reserve Riesling (Kamptal)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $35
At this point subdued, this wine promises future pleasures with a ripe, rounded but precise character. Right now, it’s citrus that shows, with ripe lemon zest and some grapefruit. Underneath riches of red apples, yellow peaches and apricots await. Purity and minerality are a bonus. This is a keeper; drink as of 2018.  — A.K.  (5/1/2014)
