DOMAINE WACHAU FEDERSPEIL "TERRASSEN" GRUNER VELTLINER - 2008
From Austria with 12% alcohol. 100% Gruner Veltliner.
Pale gold tinted hue with lychee, apples and pears on the nose. Medium-bodied with citrus and dominant candy banana "circus peanuts" on the mid-palate. Good acidity and great depth of flavor.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
This is a very solid offering for this varietal. Gruner Veltliner can sometimes be too thin or drift into sour acidity. This has a great balance of ripe fruit and acid. Clean, dry but with a touch of sweetness. Retails for somewhere around $16 making it a good value for the quality in the bottle.
