Lemon creme, minerals, grapefruit, lemon-grass and lime candy all swirl together in the nose to display a wine on the narrow edge between opulence and restraint. It’s deep and fresh at the same time... After a viscous at entry, this young Gruner leads to a citrus acidity and a long grapefruit finish. Never funky, this is a elegant, clean and extremely complex white wine. Slightly more in the Smargd style than Federspiel and destine to age in the bottle over the next 5 years. A very worthy debut vintage.
