Tasting note from dated 20.10.2020, Copyright Sebastian Bordthäuser
The Nikolaihof is the oldest winery in Austria, with a history dating back to 63 AD. After the secularization at the end of the 19th century, the farm became the property of the Saahs family, and in 2005 Nikolaus Saahs took over the management. As early as 1971, the Nikolaihof began to work according to biodynamic principles, which resulted in certification by Demeter. Since then, they have been using nettle liquid manure, valerian drops, horsetail tea and specially prepared preparations instead of herbicides, pesticides or fungicides. The 2014 Nikolauswein is a blend of 70% Riesling, 20% Grüner Veltliner and 10% variable amounts of other varietals. Aged for six years in small wooden barrels, it was bottled in April 2020. A proud 230 grams of residual sugar are accelerated by 9 grams of acidity.


Strong amber with lime green reflexes.


The 2014 Nikolauswein from Nikolaihof is almost explosive on the nose. A kaleidoscope of aromas fans out on the wheel of a peacock, so that one is busy sniffing for a quarter of an hour before the first sip. The wheel of aromas ranges from dark orange to light brown and includes fruits, candied and dried as well as spices and herbal and savory aromas. Garnished with the obligatory volatile acidity, it is marked by the long ageing in wood, the fresh fruits capricious on dates and dried figs. Closely followed by candied orange peel and dried apple rings, a spoonful of acacia honey is mixed in, roasted chestnuts and roasted almonds round off the orgy.


With a whopping 230 grams, this diabetic dystopia aromatically mirrors the nose almost congruently on the palate, with the dark flavors predominating nuts, chestnuts and dates take over the spicy part, chestnut and fir honey lead aromatically deep into the complex aromatic thicket. With a silky texture and radiantly bright acidic nerve beneath its selflessly lavish richness, its dark spice is pleasingly buoyant on the palate. The wood is skillfully used and supports the spicy aromatics, which rewards the courageous with unexpected combinations at the table.
