Tasting Notes: 2011 Höpler Grüner Veltliner

This was was a

steal at Oliver’s Market

in Santa Rosa for $11. At 11.5% alc, and a fan of Grüner Veltliner, I couldn’t resist and bought blind without even looking

up.

Sadly, domestic, good Gruner is hard to find, so indulge yourself with a foreign investment.

Tasting Notes: 2011 Höpler Grüner Veltliner

To The Eye: Pale straw color, with slight hint of effervescence.


On The Nose: Green apple, lime peel, hint of wet stone.

In the Mouth: Green apple, citrus, nice minerality, bright but well rounded fruit, despite the acidity.

Recommendation: A great summer sipper. Recommended. Great QPR. 89 points.

Expand beyond NZ Sauv Blanc will you?! :)
Please take out of the fridge 15 minutes before drinking.
Overchilling will obliterate the subtleties of most whites, expect the bad ones of course, then over chilling is encouraged!
