"This bio-dynamic number is pale in color with aromas of petrol that reminded me of an older Riesling with pineapple, apple, lemon and almonds. It is light and tangy with a hint of lime, pear and green apple. It finishes zippy and bone dry with a nutty finish."

This vintage is especially detailed and snappy and you seem to tate every pebble and each lee; it's the liquid version of their salad of seventeen edible flowers and plants. And by the way, we drank a Hefeabzug from 1987
so don't dare think this wine is some petite Vin de l?Année that won't age.
This powerful, plush-tasting Grüner boasts concentrated flavors of apple tart, baked peach, ruby grapefruit and gooseberry. Unctuous in the midpalate, with a lingering finish of smoke and spice notes. Very expressive. Drink now through 2020. 879 cases imported.
Despite early-harvest, the Nikolaihof 2010 Gruner Veltliner Hefeabzug weighs-in at, for this bottling, relatively robust over-12% alcohol, which is all the more surprising considering that this wine has seldom exhibited a more delightful sense of levity. There is almost a sweet sense to the crisp green bean, apple, and pear succulently displayed on a lushly-textured, lees-enriched palate. A refreshing thread of lemon juice and a sense of crushed stone suffusion speak to the brightness and mineral density characteristic for this vintage at its best, while a bittersweet, Pinot Blanc-like suggestion of corn shoots adds to the stimulation of a long finish. This should prove delightfully versatile for at least the better part of half a dozen years.
