Style: Light & Crisp

Wine Style Guide

Light & Crisp

Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.

Fruity & Smooth

Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.

Rich & Creamy

Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.

Alcohol By Volume: 12.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Bright straw yellow, inviting and open on the nose with aromas of white pepper, gooseberry and hints of yellow apple. Medium bodied with a crisp acidity, very balanced and spicy finish. A typical Grüner Veltliner at Federspiel level, subtle and very racy.

Serve chilled, directly from the fridge at 8°C. Drink young or store to mature for 2-3 years. A very versatile food wine! Perfectly accompanies poultry, fish, sea foods and a variety of cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"This fills in its broad, loamy texture with exotic notes of salted limes and Asian spice. It's umami-rich, a brothy note running through it, ready for Cantonese-style fried fish."
88 Points

"Light and juicy, with vanilla notes to the pineapple, guava and mango flavors, followed by a banana cream finish. Drink now."
87 Points

"Young, fruity and ready to drink this summer, this is a great wine for aperitifs with lemon and grapefruit flavors, very pure fruit and crisp acidity."
87 Points

Tried this last night and it's just as good as the 09 vintage. If you give this bottle a chance you will not be disappointed.
