A Very Special Austrian Wine Tasting
with Nikky Saahs of Nikolaihof & Georg Prieler of
Sunday, January 25, 2-4 PM
Back for the umpteenth time, and visiting for the first time are respectively, Nikki Saahs and Georg Prieler. The Nikolaihof wines are well known to long time Soifeurs and truly some of our favorites on Earth. [The 1998 Steinriesler is likely the best white wine this taster/drinker has had in several years.] Weingut Prieler is less well known on the US west coast, though they are quite famous in Austria. Their specialties include blaufrankisch and exceptional pinot blanc from several noteworthy sites including the famous DAC of Leithaberg, considered by many of those who consider such things, to produce some of the most mineral driven wines in all of Austria.
We are very fortunate to have secured a small allotment of some very rare older wines from both of the these producers. If you have not yet tasted the "100 year old infant" effect which great Austrian white wines with some age can exhibit, the experience will be reveletory.
We will be tasting:
2013 Prieler "Seeberg" Pinot Blanc
2009 Prieler "Leithaberg" Pinot Blanc
2011 Prieler Blaufrankish Ried Johannishohe
2013 Nikolaihof "Hefeabzug" Gruner Veltliner
2006 Nikolaihof "Vom Stein" Riesling
1998 Nikolaihof "Steinriesler" Riesling
Please call us at 423-2020 or email email@example.com to make reservations.
The price for non-club members will be $20/person.
