Kurt Angerer, Wachau (producer)

Hi
I guess this is kind of a question for Michael Pronay but has anyone heard of the producer Kurt Angerer? If so, what are his wines like? I've read Michael's extremely positive comments on FX Pichler but here in Ontario, I've never seen his wines. Just those sweet Kracher wines as far as really high end Austrian wine. I'm looking to add a little Austria to my cellar, especially some GV's that can age. When I went to the Austrian Trade tasting, I remember having some really stellar wines but my jaw dropped everytime they told me how much it would cost approximately in Canadian dollars.
The below wines are available ($CAD) 2003 Eichenstaude Gruner Veltliner, Wachau $27.70 2003 Donatus Riesling, Wachau $32.33
Thanks
Peter Muto

Hi Peter, I have certainly heard of Kurt Angerer, and the things I have heard are positive, but I have not nearly tasted through the wines. I can tell you that in the 2005 Wine Report (ed. Tom Stevenson), Dr. Philip Blom is quite high on this producer. As far as expanding: if you are looking to try a high-end dessert wine other than Kracher, Feiler-Artinger is generally available worldwide. Their Ruster Ausbruch wines are excellent. For Gr=FCner Veltliner see if you can find wines from H=F6gl. His winery is located in the Wachau region. His name is listed alongside those of Pichler, Prager, Knoll et. al. in the latest round of wine guides from Oz Clarke and others. As H=F6gl's wines are not yet as well known as the superstars, the prices tend to be better. H=F6gl himself is highly recommending his 2003 Stammliegenschaften Schon-Viessling GV Smaragd. Hope this helps, Emily ___________ www.winemonger.com

I guess so.
Full-bodied, very minerally, broad-shouldered - a little like the man himself:
There you can click on his homepage:
You even have an English version - which still is rare over here (although I woudn't bet on the quality of the translation ;-)
Caution, I don't know where the lapse occurred, but Kurt Angerer definitely is not Wachau, but Kremstal.
I tasted the Eichenstaude blind in June (among some other 1400 Austria wines) and quite liked it:
| Discrete nose, with a certain frehness behind; juicy, fruity | grip, clean and clear, very animating and drink-friendly, 90.
The riesling fared much less good:
| Soft riesling nose with caramel notes; very soft in texture, | broad and soft, the wine lacks bite, 84.
I don't know whether we had an off bottle (showing premature random oxidation, a cork taint) or whether the wine is not up to Angerer's usual level.
For those speaking German, 999 of the 1400 wines are listed here with tasting notes:
