Randy Fuller

This Austrian wine’s nose features a strong floral element, quickly joined by a peach note which is not quite ripe. The expected minerals come next, with white pepper, lime and an herbal play following. The palate shows minerals in high definition with a tart fruit flavor in tow, possibly quince or apricot, either one a bit on the green side. I have tasted $15 wines that were better, but also ones which were much worse. A bit more ripeness would benefit this one, but it’s just fine as is for pairing with summer salads.

Grassy green apple, faint white pepper and a subtly rich mineral mouthfeel with plenty of acidity.

Fresh and vibrant. Crisp lemon. Wet straw. Goes down quick, be careful! Excellent for the price.
