2006 Weinrieder Grüner Veltliner Alte Reben
This is an excellent example of just how good a Grüner Veltliner can be. Light gold in color, with a nose of white pepper and faint aromas of apple and pear; the taste is rich, creamy and unctuous. Pineapple, apricot and pear flavors dominate, with some vanilla notes chiming in here and there.The finish is long and starts off as pineapple tapering off to a very pleasant caramelized sugar taste. A more detailed review and pairing recipe is available here.
