Tasting Notes Wine Enthusiast: This is all about fruit—fresh crisp citrus, lively acidity, just cushioned by a creamy, ripe texture. The flavors are vivid, clean, light and ready to drink now. Screwcap.
Tasting Notes Tastings.com: Pale silvery straw color. Soft and inviting aromas of citrus custard, minerals, and prairie grass follow through on a supple, silky entry to a dryish light body with touch of white pepper and a dry, soft, lingering lime rind and talc fade. A very nice and refreshing aperitif, or serve with scallops
Color: yellow with hints of green
Aroma: Grüner Veltliner is the “queen” of the white varieties in Austria. Its main characteristics are the fruity-spicy nose, also called “Pfefferl” referring to pepper, a note that reminds of ground pepper. Clear style.
