A cornucopia of exotic-fruit aromas from papaya to durian, then stunning richness and concentration on the palate. This remarkable grüner veltliner is seriously powerful yet fresh and lively with a very bright and delicate finish. Drink or hold.

The 2017 Ried Honivogl Grüner Veltliner Smaragd is super clear and intense on the deep, buttery nose. Rich, piquant and powerful on the palate, this is a concentrated but finessed and refreshing Grüner with lots of tension, salt and grip. Impressively long. Tasted in Spitz, September 2018.
