Hirtzberger "Honivogl" Gruner Veltliner, Wachau (Austria) 2004
Deep, rich, bass nose of lentil, mint, citrus marmalade with a spicy/peppery undertone.
Really fills the mouth, and then expands (if that is possible) with flavors that mirror the nose. The spicy/peppery quality adds real lift and vibrancy. Deep lentil, citrus and spice action flows into a ridiculously long finish. This stuff just keeps kicking out flavor.. Great idiosyncratic white wine, as usual. I love this stuff.
$45. Do yourself a favor – get a bottle or two of GV. There are inexpensive versions ($12-20) that are incredibly refreshing.
