Gruner Veltliner ‘Zwickl’, Nikolaihof

This is, in essence, an unfiltered “Hefeabzug,” and you get two wines in the same bottle if you want. How? It’s fallen bright in the top one-third, and if you pour carefully you will have a clear wine. You can then shake the rest of the bottle to mix the sediment and pour yourselves a cloudy glass of tasty atavism. They encourage this!

The ’16 is slimmer and finer, with even a hint of Manzanilla. In any case, I offer you what is probably the world’s first interactive Grüner Veltliner. Give lees a chance.
