Product Description

“From probably the warmest vineyard of the Wachau, the 2015 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Loibner Loibenberg is a full-bodied, rich and intense, very juicy, but also piquant and mineral Veltliner with tobacco flavors on the nose. Dense and with an old-vines intensity, this Loibenberg offers ripe yellow stone fruits with a tropical touch, but is also very well structred and finishes with a long and salty aftertaste. An impressive wine.” Wine Advocate 92-93 Points

“Lusciously ripe, drippingly juicy peach, mirabelle and Persian melon are seductively garlanded in honeysuckle on the nose as well as on a caressingly silken, expansive yet in no way heavy palate. A site-typical combination of nutmeg and white pepper adds to the appeal of a sustained albeit (at 14 percent alcohol) faintly warm finish. This was last tasted from tank, its sojourn in cask having been curtailed in response to the inherently ripe combination of Loibenberg and vintage 2015.” Vinous 91-92 Points
