This latest---indeed, greatest--in Michael Moosbrugger's memorable ongoing series of explorations into how and why his mid-20th century predecessors and their forebears "raised" wine, was to have been bottled this summer for autumn release... Faintly yeasty and alkaline notes in the nose accompany intimations of the rich, earthy, umami-laden foundation of subtly caramelized root vegetables that the palate delivers, studded with peppercorns and drizzled with fragrant floral honey. Satiny in texture, searchingly expansive, yet buoyant and preserving a vibrant core of sheer refreshment, this enters a finishing realm of oyster liquor-like salinity, oceanic mineral and seaweedy depth, that will milk your salivary glands while leaving your mouth agape. (Any embarrassment will be well worth it.) David Schildknecht, Vinous Media

Focused and refined lime rind and steely citrus. A great food wine with superb balance.

Holy shmoly Gruner Veltliner! Bright yet deep, fresh yet fleshy. This is Gruner at its philosophically best. Not to mention, I'm in mild shock that the winery was established in 1171.

Pale gold color. Citrus, nutty, oily nose. Myer lemon, lemon curd, lychee nut, almond, and a mineral, oily finish. Deeper than your typical Gruner. Interesting.
