What wine expert Jancis Robinson says about our wines

Weingut WEINWURM
In December 2017 we sent a selection of our wines to Jancis Robinson to Manchester (GB).
Here is the wine rating:

Weissburgunder Reserve 2015
Looks more golden, smells rounder and deeper. Brioche and buttery and lychee syrup. Rich and plump, moving with sensuous laziness around the mouth – the perfect wine for a roasted chicken and caramelised parsnips. (TC) 16.5

Like their Grüner, lightly spritzy. Pears and cream and lots of lemon zest, with a bit of white citrus pith grated in for good measure. There’s a weight and a hint of richness, a hint of shimmer. Very neat, lovely spread and presence on the mid palate, and pretty good length. (TC) 16.5

[link:3]Roter Muskateller Ried Schilling 2016[/link:3]
Grapey and floral, elderflower on the nose and palate with a green-grassy, green-gooseberry-like acidity in the middle. Dry. Finishes softly. (TC) 16.3

[link:10]Grüner Veltliner Ried Schilling 2016[/link:10]
Very light, fine spritz in the glass and on the palate. Smells, and tastes, like a bowl of fresh chopped cucumber and dill in Greek yogurt. With a tiny bit of pear sweetness, and pear graininess. Rounded and almost cushioned in the middle, but more stony and defined toward the end. (TC) 16.3

[link:11]Weissburgunder Ausbruch 2015[/link:11]
Smells of apricot jam and melted butter. You could spread this on a hot scone with a dollop of cream. Lusciously sweet, apricots dripping in syrup, but with a decent wash of acidity to back it up. (TC) 16.3

Zweigelt Reserve 2015
Lightly scented. Black cherries across the palate with a very upright, foot-tapping acidity. Very smart tannins tapering to the finish, slim-fit and elegant. Impeccably smooth with a purity to the dark fruit. Little bit of vanilla oak as the wine warms up to room temperature. Deliciously fresh and one of the most food-friendly wines I’ve had this year. (TC) 16.5
