    June 9, 2018 - The wine looks straw colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like diesel and rose. It tastes like ethanol, hazelnut, hay/straw and honeysuckle. The body is medium. The wine has round texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has high acidity.

    May 20, 2017 - Bitter and dry, especially on the finish. Has some drive and verve, but seems to lack a bit of concentration. Some quince and pear notes. A "typical" Gruner? ...just not too interesting to me. QPR doesn't seem too great.

    Apparently this is supposed to be a quintessential Gruner... or at least an epitomization of one. Frankly, I hope not. As a scientific reference, I suppose it serves that purpose. But it lacks body and depth to the point that the only thing I remember is the dryness on the back end.

    A 2015 Williams Selyem Gruner served alongside the Pichler proved to hold more interest.

    September 18, 2015 - Wachau - fine wines from the difficult 2014 vintage, and some other treasures; 9/14/2015-9/18/2015: Nice caramel note on the nose; big-bodied, tropical (passion) fruit hints on the balanced, slender, lithe entry; long, linear, continuum from the attractively acidic mid-palate through to the slightly bitter, long finish. A definite notch up from the 2014 Steinertal GV 90-93P
