Parker Pointed Grüner Veltliner

Ebaying again....and maybe GV's are still unknown among the 'community'..three bottles for € 27,--...can't complein eh .
I bid for this on the back of hearing Robert Parker (or whoever tasted in his name) gave it 9
4.

Normally I wouldn't be interested in the marking...but was inquisitive to know what the lover of heavier styles would think of this grape.

traw yellow...flowery...elegant...needed coaxing...this doesn't leap out of the glass....there is some thirst quenching acidity...and the fruit just lies easily on the palate...this is certainly no blockbuster....white pepper....with a spicy 'spritzig' finish.
94 Points...is too high...certainly at the moment...but these GV's develop beautifully..so the other 2 bottles will be put away for a while.
Points 16.5
