2018 Alzinger Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Loibenberg (750ml)

Gruner Veltliner from Wachau, Niederosterreich, Austria


A whiff of passion fruit lends a tropical overtone to the full-on ripeness on the nose. The palate continues with this swishing, generous juiciness that showcases Mirabelle plum and ripe pear. Structural elements of bitter pith, salty yeast and tingling zest complete the picture of a most concentrated, energetic and driven wine that resonates with life and flavor. This is warm and powerful but beautifully streamlined. Drink 2030–2045.

Gently flinty and quite aromatic, this has attractive floral notes with a keenly defined palate that offers fresh pear, peach and melon flavors in a smooth mode. Drink now.
