Tongue Tickling Green

Grüner Veltliner ages...no doubting that...but the wine below is just so right now....
Leo Alzinger Gruner Veltliner
Smaragd Mühlpoint 2007
Wachau, Austria
Light yellow with green tinges...a smell of ripe apples..some nuttiness...and a touch of cheese...the palate gives you tongue tickling minerals...a healthy acidity wraps the pear and apple fruit ...this has a slate feeling..and the usual white pepper...and as always...with a day's airing..continues to please.
I have to give this the same total as it costs in Euros....excellent value
Points 16.75
