Tasting Notes

“Among the starter-GVs I offer, this one is the creamiest, and I’d suggest it for the taster who isn’t sure he “likes Veltliner.” And yet this ’17 is unusual and seems to herald a change; it’s less tapioca and oatmeal and corn-sweet, and more brassica, racier, closer to Bründlmayer in style, like a somewhat more muscular Kamptaler Terassen. Whether this is a vintage thing or a harbinger of things to come remains to be seen. In the interim, we have vigor! ” Terry Theise
