    July 31, 2016 - Great varietal definition and at the sweet spot right now. Still very good energy, but mellowed acidity to a soft and sweet spicy pleasure. Rich mouthfeel, very good volume and weight, this is more on the heavy side, little heat but balanced. Long clean finish. Great aged Veltliner from Wachau.

    April 19, 2016 - I had some bottles of GV from Rudi Pichler, that did not age well, but this one was a great example of what is this variety capable. Lively but calm, warm and rich but so smooth and soft. Great structure and pronounced minerality. Bought at the winery and cellared since. May be at peak right now.

    March 14, 2016 - Trinkteif! Schwerer GV! Schon fett, aber nicht strukturlos. Trotzdem kaum Säure! Er schmeckt nicht als würde er allzu alt werden. 3-5 Jahre hat er aber bestimmt noch. Trinkt sich trotz allem sehr schön! Ist halt nicht so der spritzige Typ! :-))) Ich trinke meine letzten beiden Flaschen in den nächsten 2 Jahren!

    April 22, 2015 - Doftar söt frukt, persika, päron, äpple, blommigt, kryddigt, grönt örtigt, mosade ärter, lite stenigt mineraliskt.
    Smakar söt, varm, övermogen frukt, lätt oxiderat (!), lite örtbittert, väldigt trött syra.

    Ingen höjdare, hade förväntat mig något betydligt roligare. Trött, varmfruktigt och ingen syra att tala om.
