Machherndl 2006 Steinterrassen Smaragd Riesling (Wachau)

  • Best Buy
A structured, mineral wine, with crisp green fruit. There is some austerity here, and the wine shows potential richness, but this shows more structure at the moment. Give it 4–5 years.  — R.V.  (5/1/2008)

Machherndl 2013 Bachsatz Federspiel Grüner Veltliner (Wachau)

  • Best Buy
Very ripe, juicy yellow pears are the central feature on nose and palate of this well-balanced, concentrated and refreshing wine. Zesty lemon acidity lends poise and length.  — A.K.  (8/1/2014)

Machherndl 2006 Steinwand Smaragd Grüner Veltliner (Wachau)

  • Best Buy
A powerful, rich and complex wine, with intense pear flavors and an impressively firm structure. There is spice as well, with a mineral character underneath the richness.  — R.V.  (5/1/2008)

Machherndl 2005 Smaragd Kollmitz Grüner Veltliner (Wachau)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $22
The Kollmitz’s Joching vineyard is at the heart of Erich Machherndl’s wines, producing both Riesling and Grüner Veltliner. This Grüner is impressively rich in a smooth, creamy style, with fresh green apples and white currant flavors. It should age well, its richness giving it the right structure.  — R.V.  (8/1/2007)

Machherndl 2003 Smaragd Kollmitz Grüner Veltliner (Wachau)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $25
A bit reticent on the nose, offering little more than hints of honey and peppery spice. It’s much more expressive in the mouth, where it delivers melon, pear and liquid minerals via a full, oily-textured mouthfeel. Imported by Broadbent Selections, Inc.  — J.C.  (3/1/2006)

Machherndl 2008 Kollmütz Federspiel Grüner Veltliner (Wachau)

  • Best Buy
  1. $14
A steely side of Grüner here, very crisp with a strong mineral element. The wine is razor sharp and bright, with a brittle texture. With its vibrant acidity, this is a great food-pairing wine. Screw cap.  — R.V.  (12/31/2010)

Machherndl 2013 Kollmütz Federspiel Grüner Veltliner (Wachau)

  1. $16
Zippy green pear and a spritz of lemon make this an inviting and almost thirst-quenching choice. Poised acidity pulls through to the zesty finish.  — A.K.  (8/1/2014)

Machherndl 2007 Kollmitz Smaragd Grüner Veltliner (Wachau)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $29
This rich but dry wine brings out Grüner Veltliner’s peppery character, which shows on top of the pear and quince flavors. The acidity offers a lift to this intense, concentrated wine.  — R.V.  (3/1/2009)
