This is my favorite California Gruner Veltliner, and admittedly small sample size. It really is an outstanding wine. Light green/gold in color. The nose has minerals, limes and is a bit steely. On the palate the limes carry thru with minerals underneath. Crisp yet a hint of viscosity. Concentrated. Long finish. This does drink well on its own but is better with food. Seafood or salads work well. It will drink well for five to seven years most likely, but it will be interesting to watch.
