Youthful, refined and layered nose of nutty characters, peaches, apricots, apples, pears and lime. The palate is well structured with crisp acidity, ripe yellow stone fruit, a salty minerality and excellent length. This is an altogether seriously good Grüner Veltliner with profound complexity and promise. Age in bottle will only add to its stature. *Platinum Award Decanter World Wine Awards 2018*
A smoky nose (slight reduction) and a tightly-wound, sleek palate make this a long-term wine that will need some time to open up. Good depth and structure. A long and crisp finish. Better from 2018.
Pungently smoky, ashen notes and piquancy of lime zest that extend from nose to finish render this one of several vintage 2016 Grüner Veltliner that put me in mind of Furmint. But scents and flavors of apple, green bean and tarragon testify to the wine’s varietal origin while combining for a cooling, psychologically crunchy impression that nicely complements and tempers the zesty and smoky elements as well as the tropical suggestions of mango and Persian melon that emerge midpalate. There is a subtle sense of textural creaminess but also ample primary juiciness, which is maintained through a sustained, alkaline, smoky and ashen finish. This didn’t complete its primary fermentation until the end of March – extremely late for this estate – by which time a portion had undergone malolactic transformation. This is definitely a wine that will be intriguing to follow in bottle. (DS)
