Nikolaihof 2008 Vom Stein Smaragd Riesling (Wachau)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $62
Like many Nikolaihof wines, this one needs aging. It is beautifully textured, very perfumed with white currants and wildflower flavors followed by bright, steely acidity. Give this at least five years.  — R.V.  (10/1/2010)

Nikolaihof 2004 Steiner Hund Reserve Riesling (Wachau)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $88
A wonderfully perfumed wine, the floral Riesling character just flying out of the glass. Those perfumes start a wine that has a tight, intense mineral character given a fine edge from acidity. But there are also secondary flavors of dried fruits, spices, violets. The finish is dry, crisp, delicious.  — R.V.  (7/1/2009)

Nikolaihof 1993 Vinothek Grüner Veltliner (Wachau)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $208
From Nikolaihof’s reserve library collection, this is living, vivid proof of the aging ability of Grüner Veltliner. The wine is still fresh, a lively line of acidity giving bite and shape to flavors of fresh almonds, dried fruits and a rounded final caramel taste. This is a wine to savor, to sip and relish.  — R.V.  (7/1/2009)

Nikolaihof 2005 Vom Stein Smaragd Riesling (Wachau)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $74
Structured with green plums and currants, this delicious, limpid wine envelops the palate with citrus and pure, crisp fruit flavors. A great expression of terroir-driven Riesling, with a mineral and steely structure to support the fruit.  — R.V.  (5/1/2008)

Nikolaihof 1991 Vinothek Trocken Grüner Veltliner (Wachau)

  1. $130
This is a great wine, proof that Grüner Veltliner can age magnificently. It was kept in large wood casks for 15 years before bottling, resulting in mature aromas with white flower perfumes. On the palate, the fresh currant flavors are dominant. The flavors come together to form a ripe, complex wine.  — R.V.  (5/1/2008)

Nikolaihof 2005 Klausberg Privatreserve Riesling (Wachau)

  • Online Exclusive
As this wine gets a few more years behind it, the initial fresh fruit is softening, giving instead a light caramel, nutmeg and almond character. The texture is soft, but full, still a mineral, stony edge, with an underlayer of tight, vivid acidity.  — R.V.  (7/1/2009)

Nikolaihof 2008 Im Weingebirge Smaragd Grüner Veltliner (Wachau)

  1. $59
A beautiful wine that manages to have a great panoply of rich fruits and spices along with pure green apple acidity. It is intense, but so balanced and poised.  — R.V.  (10/1/2010)

Nikolaihof 2007 Vom Stein Smaragd Riesling (Wachau)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
Christine Saahs is a believer that high alcohol is not a necessity for a powerful, rich wine. And this proves her point. There is weight here, intensity, but the lower alcohol gives the wine poise and delicacy. It stays fresh, and will age with that freshness intact. Keep for another 4–5 years.  — R.V.  (7/1/2009)
