Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006!
This Grüner Veltliner is a blend of wines sourced from different terraced vineyards. The elevated terraces consist of stonier soils that bring fruit driven wines with mineral nuances and good aging potential. The vines from lower sited terraces grow partly on layered fertile loess and bring earlier maturing wines that are very expressive in their youth. By combining those two characteristics, Veltliners that show both finesse and a certain vigor are attained.
Delicate lemon and lime fruit with a hint of spice, straightforward and fresh on the palate, mineral nuances, good structure and balance, medium body and length, classic.
Food pairings: A perfect companion to many starters such as smoked trout, ham, cold vegetables, tapas, or fresh marinated goat cheese with herbs; also very good with fish barbecue, seafood, or roasted chicken.
"Rich and focused aromas and flavors of ripe apple, peach, gooseberry and ruby red grapefruit give this plenty of punch and power. Long finish of spice, pepper and vanilla. Built to age. Drink now through 2015."
