Gruner Veltliner 'Die Lage', Setzer

Why not just name “Die Lage” (the vineyard)? Because its name is Eichholz (Oakwood), which could confuse customers into supposing the wine has oak flavors, which it doesn’t. In any case, it’s the best vintage of this wine for many years and is a short-lister for sure. Ripe, firm, generous in a muscular form, with a great salty spine; vetiver and flowering field and then a crusty minerality that recalls Renner, or Ott’s Stein. -Terry Theise
