Alzinger Ried Mühlpoint Smaragd Grüner Veltliner 2017
The vineyard is located on the slope of the Steinertal. While in the upper part of the influence of the mountain is still clearly felt and gneiss penetrates to the surface, the lower half is increasingly characterized by the level and continuously deeper loam layers. Aromatically, these factors are noticeable above all through pronounced spiciness.
Spicy and salty, fruity background; powerful texture, concentrated body, lively acidity, always straightforward and focused.

Wine SpectatorA rich, smoky Grüner, luscious and creamy up front, but with underlying acidity that pierces its way through, revealing persimmon, vanilla and cardamom notes. Features a really lovely texture, almost velvety, coating the palate, but still remains fresh. Complex and long. 212 cases imported. Best from 2020 through 2030
