Tasting:

    He said: Chilled before drinking. Fairly dark oat straw color. Slightly floral and quite strong tropical fruit aromas. Delicious layers of fruity taste that had a substantial crispness. A WOW tart fruit finish that just goes on and on. VERY food friendly Grüner Veltliner. The dry tartness was perfect with the floral aromas that lasted through the last pour. VERY nice Austrian Grüner Veltliner and it gets two thumbs up from me.

    She said: Mild pleasant aroma with fruity hints that was much better than the “house” Grüner Veltliner that we blind tasted it with. Medium body, nice dryness, and the wine was refreshing into the medium long finish. It was so neutral that it went well with the whole dinner. At this price it was excellent and a good tasting experience.
