Martin Mittelbach is a Wachau insider with an outsider’s perspective. He is the fifth generation of Mittelbachs to run the historical Tegernseerhof, an estate that goes further back than 1000 years. Despite the estate’s historical merit you couldn’t find a much more progressive winemaker with his own set of standards and way of thinking in this region. Martin took over the estate at a very young age and immediately changed the way things were done. As you could imagine, there was some friction with his father who preferred to make wines more on the sweeter side. Today, you would be hard pressed to find a more dry and straight style in the Wachau. The grapes are harvested and sorted rigorously to take out any botrytis grapes and then vinified and raised in stainless steel. They are harvested with no botrytis to keep the wines focused and tense. His wines are like his personality: intense, focused and highly intellectual. These laser beams are as far away from the often baroque style that can be found in this region. In every level his wines excel and can stand tall next to any of the greatest producers in Austria.

The Wine

This wine is an explosion of pleasure straight out of the bottle. A blend of vineyards from Weisenkirchen and Loiben, it has a crazy good range of complex pleasantries that are developed in the confines of stainless steel. The soils are mostly composed of the great acidic bedrock (which they refer to as “primary rock”) gfogel gneiss, and a bit of loess.

Uni, iodine, marine salt, gardenia, sweet mint, cassis, black pepper, peanut brittle, and sweet green melon make for an intensely complex set of aromas that leap from the glass—all within the first seconds of smelling it! This wine relentlessly infiltrates your senses and commands your attention until the last drop is gone. It’s unapologetically extroverted with the addicting charm of a great storyteller, loaded with deep mineral, metal, and powerful rock notes. Simply put, this is awesome stuff. If there is a Bono, or Mick, in the range of Martin’s wines, this is it!
