Freie Weingärtner Wachau Domäne Wachau Grüner Veltliner Terrassen Federspiel 2007
Slight pear, apple, and petrol on the nose. Medium bodied and quite acidic. Tastes like a Grüner Veltliner masquerading as a riesling, but with none of the white pepper spice. A nice break from the rieslings of Alsace or Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, but not as expressive/explosive as the former, nor as delicate as the latter. Perhaps a different vintage will make for a more characteristic wine.
