This has evolved nicely over the last year and seems to be in a great place right now.  Deep golden in color but still with a green tinge to it.  On the nose there is an almost Gardenia/white flower note.  Also nice minerality and slight limes.  On the palate, there is a strong mineral tone to the wine.  Very good acidity.  Lower alcohol which also makes the texture thinner but more lively.  A bit of lime peel.  Long finish.  This is very food friendly.  $20 retail.  It probably needs to be consumed by 2020 although Grüner does age well.
