Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Mühlpoint

Another Leo Alzinger masterpiece. Again Muhlpoint's lighter soils give us a wine which is fruity rather than mineral in character, but this Smaragd is altogether more intense than the Federspiel.

More about this wine

A pale green-yellow with peppery spicy nose. On the palate, really quite intense despite it's youth, again peppery, spicy, nutty and with a lovely soft satin creamy texture. A truly excellent Grüner Veltliner which is quite approachable now, but which will repay laying down. Very small allocation.
