Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
(94-96

The 2005 Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Kellerberg (tasted from cask), smells unusually sweetly of snap pea, ripe apricot, and strawberry jam, with its site-typical pepperiness very much relegated to the background. In the mouth, the fruit flavors surge in pepper-tinged waves and the wine finishes with a veritable organ chord from mocha, peach kernel, wet stone, and pepper pedal point through luscious pit fruit and red berry to high-toned distilled fruit esters. (David Schildknecht)

Medium green-yellow. Delicate pear, minerals, snap pea and soft herbal spices on the highly nuanced nose. Steely and aristocratic in the mouth, if a bit youthfully unevolved and waiting to burst forth, with concentrated green mango, yellow plum, celery and snow pea flavors complemented by pronounced flinty character. Despite the wine's impressive opulence, it manages to come off as fine-boned and exceptionally precise. More time in bottle will allow this great veltliner to fully express its inherent complexity and site character. Drink 2008 to 2015+. (Peter Moser)
