Gruner Veltliner Steinertal Smaragd, Alzinger

Steinertal faces southwest, high up on the hillsie above Loiben, and the first terraced vineyard past the western border of the Kremstal. Soils here are poor and this is one of the cooler vineyards in the region, affected by the north wind.

Tasting Notes

Fantastic aroma! An utter classic vintage of this, a numinous dialogue between its herbal, racy and limey elements and its physio-sweetness, between the citric pinch and a creamy mid-palate richness. Leo says it’s like a 2013-2012 hybrid—makes sense. – Terry Theise
