A good pair from Erich Sattler


I returned to MacArthur Beverages to pick up more 2017 Erich Sattler, Zwiegelt, Burgenland.  Both Jenn and I really enjoyed a bottle drunk mid week.  It is a satisfying, easy to drink wine with a good balance between green lightness and ripeness.  Sadly, there was none left in the store so I picked up the 2015 Erich Sattler, St. Laurent, Burgenland instead.  I was a bit underwhelmed at first for it does not have the tension of the Zwiegelt.  A bit reduced at first but with air it came into focus with the saline qualities balancing the tart fruit.  Well-done.

2017 Erich Sattler, Zwiegelt, Burgenland – ~$20
A Terry Theise Estate Selection imported by Skurnik Wines.  Alcohol 13%.  Bright with hints of green herbaceousness that provide attractive contrast to the ripeness.  There is watering acidity but also tension between the acidity and flavors.  This is an easy to drink, complete wine for the near term.  There is even a hint of fat.  *** Now – 2020.

2015 Erich Sattler, St. Laurent, Burgenland – ~$19
A Terry Theise Estate Selection imported by Skurnik Wines.  Alcohol 13%.  Salty flavors of modestly ripe fruit exhibit a cool tilt.  The wine has rounded edges and watering acidity.  At first the focus is on somewhat tart mulberry flavors but with air, the wine comes into focus.  It improves after an hour or two taking on dry leather, stones, and becoming more saline in the end.  *** Now – 2022.
