frisse witte wijn met in de afdronk een voller kruidige aanzet wat hem interessant maakt. Eerste slok was even wennen maar daarna lekker. Gegeten met asperges, goede combi.

The nose is pear with a smokey, earthy background. The palate is bright with pinapple and honeydew melon. It is extremely fruit-forward, but it is dry style. Rather than betraying the dryness, the fruit enhances the style by increasing the body. Strong finish that lingers as it fades off. Would recommend this as a inexpensive compromise for people between the dry and sweet styles.

This Grüner Veltliner Terrassen from Domäne Wachau is named after the steep terraces overlooking the Danube where the vines are cultivated. The Federspiel tag is a falconry term and means it is on the second of three levels of alcoholic strength - the top being Smaragd, meaning emerald and referring to the colour of a local lizard. Medium-bodied, it has a lightness and a hint of smokiness with aromatic white pepper on the nose; on the palate there is the refreshing acidity of ripe cox's apples and conference pears. Elegant with good structure and mineral backbone, it also has a slightly herbaceous character that, along with the smokiness, is strangely reminiscent of a Loire Sauvignon. We had it with a very fishy dinner of smoked salmon mousse with rocket followed by coquailles St Jacques and lightly-baked salmon. In truth, it was slightly overwhelmed by the meatiness of the fish and the strong flavours of the salad leaves - a Smaragd would have been better here - and a more appropriate match might perhaps have been a simple white fish, such as plaice or sole. Alternatively, match with light Italian food, such as mozzarella or tortelloni tossed in butter with grated parmagiano and a grind or two of black pepper on top. The 2009 vintage has a number of awards: Decanter magazine: Bronze (2009 vintage) IWC medal: Bronze (2009 vintage) IWSC medal: Silver (2009 vintage)

There's lots of apricot and golden raisin flavors in this medium-bodied white. The firm finish features some buttery notes. Drink now through 2014. 800 cases made. -KM
