Hiedler Loss Gruner Veltliner 2007 Wine Review (NW)
Fragrant citrus, stone fruit, and mineral tones woven throughout bouquet
Lean, tight, and focused on the palate
Clean and crisp finish with more stone fruit and mineral layers
This wine starts out very lean and focused, then it evolves a bit with some time in the glass. I recently enjoyed a bottle with colleagues at Aureole in New York. We paid $48- a considerable mark up for a $17 wine. This is more and more common for the lower priced wines on restaurant wine lists. In general, be careful with that. In top restaurants it's a little easier to swallow. Fortunately, in this case, so was the wine. Raise a glass!
