  • Domane Wachau Gruner Veltliner Terraces 2012

Medium bodied...full-mouth coating with great zippiness from lots of well integrated acid. More of the same fruit cocktail on the palate - lots of nectarine and maybe some ginger too. Great length with a reall... Read More

    Not much to this Austrian Gruner Veltliner. A bit of lemon cream, subtle touch of citrus but not much else. None of the floral notes or stone fruit one would expect, fairly flat. Read More
