5 Top Rated Riesling

5. Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Terrassen (2009)

« Prev 5 of 5
Previously available for $11.41
This is beautifully pungent with green herb notes flanked by fennel, dried lemon peel, grapefruit and a hint of pink peppercorn. Big on entry and a touch soft, the acidity here takes a moment to assert itself before adding a nice mineral inflection to the grapefruit pith and pear fruit of the palate. With air more mineral emerges, particularly on the back end, but then this stumbles a bit on the short finish. Again though, with air, there is progress, as this turns nicely pithy with long, herbal top notes and a nice mineral base. This is very nice today but I think time will help move it to a better place. 91pts
