Weixelbaum, Rosengarten Grüner Veltliner 2015, Kamptal, Austria
Tasting Note: Grüner veltliner is a versatile white that from good producers can show body and concentration; this producer is a good producer.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of pineapple, green pear, mango, and lemon citrus peel.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied wine expresses fruit flavors suggested on the nose with hints of white pepper.
The grüner veltliner is creamy and medium-plus in flavor intensity.
A lovely white.
Bottle Note: The Weixelbaum Winery is a family business since 1770 and is constantly looking for consistently excellent wines. This grüner veltliner is full of fresh nuances and shows aromas exuding apple and traces of fine spice. Goes well with salads, starters, fish and many grilled food.
