NIKOLAIHOF WACHAU TERRASSEN GRÜNER VELTLINER 2014 DAC Wachau
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer NIKOLAIHOF
Bright medium straw colour. Fairly intense, slightly spicy, mineral-tinged, ripe lemon-apple nose with some youthful, ripe, faintly nutty notes. Dry, medium bodied, surprisingly well structured, mineral-driven, ripe lemon-apple-melon flavours with a lingering, gently complex, unoaked finish. This outstanding Gruner would be great for seafood and should not be missed. It can age well fom many years to come!

TASTING NOTE: This is lean, tight, taut, energetic and lively Grüner Veltliner from the region's (and one of Europe's) oldest biodynamic producers, since 1970. It's still in a smoky reductive phase and not really near prime drinking, even for this great estate's entry-level bottling. The palate is perfectly pitched and finely etched, with very fine length and depth. A terrific wine at a terrific price, for the purists in the crowd. Best after 2018. Score - 90 (John Szabo, MS, winealign.com, Dec. 21, 2016) Price $ 20.95
