AWARDS & TASTING NOTES
WINE ENTHUSIAST: Rating 90
Pear, sage, yeast and pepper on the nose bode well for a most savory wine. The palate comes in with juicy, ripe freshness, while some spritz accentuates the savoriness. This is easy but full-flavored with a dry finish.
WINE ADVOCATE/ ROBERT PARKER, rating 90
The 2018 Langenlois Grüner Veltliner displays a very clear, fresh and elegant, crystalline and flinty bouquet of white fruits. On the palate, this is a lush and bright, very elegant and balanced Veltliner with good freshness, finesse and a stimulatingly salty finish. Sourced in the Spiegel, Thal and Freiheit, the 2018 already drinks beautifully and impresses by its refreshing brightness, balance and finesse.
BLIND TASTED BY ANDREAS LARSSON: Rating 90
Bright light golden colour. Fresh yellow plum, peach and pear with citrus and an herbal spiciness. Good grip on the palate, medium to full with a very bright freshness, youthful texture but balanced and digest with good grip and length.
JAMESSUCKLING.COM: Rating 90
Lots of candied citrus and lemon cream, then a nice combinaton of restrained richness and soft acidity, makes this easy to enjoy. Drink now.

Juicy fruit, yellow nectarine, papaya, decent spice, well balanced texture, harmonic flow, fruity finish
WINE ENTHUSIAST: Rating 91
Fresh, herb and miso-tinged yeast for now is the chief flavor on this zesty, fresh and punchy yet slender little number. There is pepper and pear, but also soy and salt, with a lovely hint of both fizz and peach framed by super-zesty lemon freshness. You simply want to drink more.
