Very concentrated expression of Gruner. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose shows some vanilla, lemon, and spice. Very nice creamy texture with good acidity. On the palate, this has plenty of depth and complexity. Lemons, and dried herbs. Long finish. This vintage seems like it should be more accessible while waiting on the 19's and 21's. Drink over the next seven years. Great on its own, this should be very food friendly. Soft cheeses should work well.
