Reviews

A delicious grüner veltliner that's both juicy and beautifully balanced. This has great mirabelle character, plus delicate and sweet vegetal aromas. Long, elegant and properly dry finish that makes you want to order a fine fish dish right now! ~93JS

Seductive and textured, with a distinct profile, showing aromas and flavors of hops, candied citrus, pineapple and mineral that mingle with a moderately firm structure and creamy texture. Powerful and delicious now, but should develop well over time. Drink now through 2028. 84 cases imported. ~92 WS
