2018 Alzinger Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Steinertal (750ml)

Gruner Veltliner from Wachau, Niederosterreich, Austria


Slight reduction still mixes with the wonderfully fleshy notions of Mirabelle plum and ripe pear on the nose. The palate continues to portray almost boundless, generous juiciness. A touch of citrus zest and pith contains this fruitfulness and adds an edge of grapefruit spice and salty, pithy, slightly bitter yeast. The finish reverberates with warmth and spice. Drink 2030–2040.

This shows impressive range, featuring hints of mango and apple, framed by sage, clove and white chocolate notes. The texture caresses the palate, while piercing acidity gives this focus and precision. Long and mouthwatering on the richly spiced finish. Drink now through 2031. 214 cases imported.

Ripe and sweetly fragrant aromas of white peaches and melon. The palate is rich and fleshy, very textural, ripe and soft. Drink now.
