Winzer Krems – Gruner Veltliner, 2016

  • Basic info: Winzer Krems, “Kremser Sandgrum” Gruner Veltliner – Austria, 2016
  • Type: White
  • Price estimate: $13 (Total Wine)
  • Look: Very pale yellow, almost clear. Some legs, but not when cold.
  • Smell: Herbs and citrus
  • Taste: Slight effervescence with lemon the predominate flavor. Some other citrus is present, but not overpowering. Slight sour note on the short finish.
  • Conclusions: Not bad. Not as good as the PFAFFL.
  • Other notes: I was super excited about this wine, but the bottle disappointed just a little. The sour note and short finish made the wine less enjoyable than I had anticipated and part of that is simply because the first bottle of this varietal I had was so outstanding.
  • From the bottle: No bottle notes, but from Total Wine, Savory notes of crushed chervil and yeast join lively, almost fizzing notes of lemon zest. This is ultrafresh, light-footed and very toned. Juicy, ripe acidity animates you to drink this almost as a thirst-quencher. This will work on a hot, sunny evening.” 12.5% alcohol by volume.
