Citrus, mineral and floral notes abound in a distinctly savory Grüner that needs time to unwind from its recent bottling. My sense is that the Meeresboden is holding back quite a bit of its potential, as there is good underlying intensity waiting to emerge.

2014 Habit "Dry Farmed" Santa Ynez Valley Gruner Veltliner

Jeb Dunnuck of eRobertParker.com writes: "A new winery for me, Habit Wines is run by Jeff Fischer and he’s able to pull from top sites, including McGinley and Grassini in Happy Canyon and La Encantada in the Sta.

2009 Huber Obere Steigen Grüner Veltliner Traisental

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium green-yellow. Subtle apple and dried pear on the nose and palate, with complicating notes of fresh tobacco, pepper and fennel.
