Markus Huber Gruner Veltliner Obere Steigen 2009
Medium green-yellow. Subtle apple and dried pear on the nose and palate, with complicating notes of fresh tobacco, pepper and fennel. Elegant and light on its feet, with a refreshing curve of acid framing and lifting the complex array of flavors. Remains vibrant and mouthwatering through a very persistent finish. Drink to 2019.
Very mineral in style, but quite warm, with a lime and final grapefruit core. Fresh in character, but at the same time it is concentrated, and could age for a couple of years.
