2019 Alzinger "Ried Loibenberg" Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Wachau

SKU #1523095 98 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A touch of savory yeast slowly emerges on the closed nose. The taut but concentrated palate then adds its yeasty, salty, crushed dandelion flavors to the picture. This is bright and fresh, wonderfully tight and concentrated, just waiting to unfold layer upon layer of salty umami pleasure. Slender, tight and full of promise, it ends on a flash of citrus. Drink 2025–2050. (AK) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

Outer quote mark The ‘Loibenberg’ single-vineyard sits halfway up a hill, sunny and warm with deep loess soil. The Grüner Veltliner is more golden in colour than the ‘Ried Steinertal’ from the same producer. A ripe nose of stone fruit, yellow pear and green apple, garnished by a hint of crushed stone, dusted by nose-tingling pepper spices. Smooth and oily in texture, with lovely concentration of yellow fruits, grapefruit, bitter lime peel and green apple, a savoury undertone follows to a long, spicy finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2025.(SW) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers some high-toned elderflower, beeswax and tropical fruit aromas, along with grapefruit and legume flavors. Intense and complex on an elegant frame, with a bracingly long finish. Drink now through 2028. Inner quote mark (7/2021)
