An exciting, unusual expression of Grüner Veltliner – kumquat, mango, racy acidity, almost buttery, but completely avoids being overbearing or fat. Nose has some lightly aromatic notes (lychee, but nothing like as O.T.T. as Gewürztraminer). Still a baby but beautiful, nuanced and super drinkable. A very fine effort which is already wonderful, and has even
Bruised apple and angelica on the nose, expressive and open on the palate, unfolding to a delicate and longish finish. Medium acids but very elegantly poised. Perhaps not for long ageing, but delicious now.
Apricot and green pepper notes, nice definition and fresh acids. Still young and primary, but this is crisp and focused, with a dry, mineral finish. A very elegant, classy style of Grüner. Hint of hay on the nose.
