Hollenburg—Wine Spectator, the world’s leading authority on wine, has announced the
Kremstal DAC 2018 Grüner Veltliner Ried Kremser Kogl has been named the #70 wine in this year’s list of the Top 100 Wines. The full list of the Top 100 Wines can be found online at top100.winespectator.com.
“Wine lovers today have more choice than ever, and this year’s Top 100 selection is a reflection of that diversity,” said Thomas Matthews, Executive Editor, Wine Spectator. “From established winemakers and new discoveries to outstanding values and exciting comebacks, the Top 100 tells many compelling behind-the-bottle stories. We encourage readers to explore the list and find their favorite picks.”
The winning bottles were selected from a pool of more than 15,000 wines reviewed by Wine Spectator editors in the magazine’s blind tastings. Selections are based on four criteria: quality (represented by score), value (reflected by price), availability (based on the number of cases either made or imported into the U.S.) and, most important, a compelling story behind the wine or what Wine Spectator calls the “X-factor.”
