    February 7, 2015 - less flinty and distinctive than previous vintages--did i wait too long?

    April 23, 2012 - Medium yellow. Tart to start but the gains some creaminess and herbal flavor interest.

    April 4, 2012 - Pale straw colour (which is really deep for Gruner). Really rich on nose and palate as well. There was some seepage on this bottle, but I don't really smell any oxidation. Caraway, baked pear, melon, and white floral nose with a leesy note too. This is a really ripe example of Gruner. There is some fine delineation and precision here despite the richness (lots of extract, almost waxy and Savennieres like). Lingering and expansive finish with a bright lime note. Medium level of acidity. Outstanding and unique. However, those looking for a more typical bracing style might be a little disappointed.

Terry Theise Estate Selections

  • By Terry Theise
    2011 Austrian Catalog, 5/1/2011 (link)

    (Hiedler Grüner Veltliner "Loess") ($22.00) Amazingly good this year, because it’s incredibly detailed and refined, super-clear and almost pixilated; a class löss-GrüVe with hints of caraway and fennel seed, leading to a brief but attractively grassy farewell. Please note; this isn’t remarkable because it has more fruit or ripeness than usual, but because it has more strength and detail than usual. In any case it’s the best vintage since the wine was created.
