Press & Reviews
Aromas of crystallized lime blossom, grapefruit peel, jasmine and an intriguing line of patchouli invite the nose into this bottling, whose name means ocean soil. There's a fantastic texture on the palate, where lemon- and lime-blossom flavors meet with grapefruit-peel and lime-pith elements.
Tatomer's 2018 Grüner Veltliner Meeresboden is loaded with a whole range of citrus, orchard fruit and floral notes. Beautifully textured and generous the Meeresboden has a bit more richness and volume, which really brings out the flavors nicely. This is a fabulous showing.
