To my taste, Grüner Veltliner at its best displays beautiful pink grapefruit scents with lots of mineral undertones -- and that's what this one had.
Eye: Light gold with greenish glints.
Nose: Creamed minerals, lots of pink grapefruit and apply fruit, with some straw undertones.
Mouth: Soft-textured, yet with a crisp, zesty mouthfeel. Fresh stoniness with lots of dry bitter-apple and lemon-lime fruit. Long, refreshing finish. Very distinctive.
Cellar or drink? Drink over the next year.
Price/store: $17 at Spec's on Smith.
