Hiedler Grüner Veltliner Thal 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This flinty and floral Grüner from Kamptal has gorgeous body, making it a bit meatier and more substantial on the palate than some other Grüners made in a leaner, racier style. Ripe flavors of sour apricot and white peach are matched by a piercing stream of acidity that holds the wine together and keeps the generous fruit in check. This mineral-driven bottling derives its name from the "loess" soils on which it was grown. An exceptional value for top quality Grüner!

Kamptal, AustriaHiedler Gruner Veltliner Loess is a beautiful white wine gem and a great introduction to this signature white varietal of Austria. Gruner Veltliner is the specialty of Ludwig Hiedler, whose Kamptal estate embraces 16 hectares of vineyards planted primarily to Gruner, Riesling and Zweigelt. Soil types include sandy loess and loam, gravel and eroded desert sandstone. The 2008 Hiedler Gruner Veltliner Loess received a rating of 89 points from Wine Spectator. Robert Parker has not yet reviewed the 2008 vintage but the 2007 received a 90-point score.Hiedler Gruner Veltliner Loess is light yellow-green in color. It has a pleasant nose of lime, peony, lentil and white tea. Creamy and balanced with medium body, it is complex on the palate with flavors of yellow plum, apple, apricot and lemon-lime. The wine was fermented in stainless steel and spent some time on the lees. It is drinking beautifully now and will be enjoyable through 2016. The finish is long, zesty and flavorful.Enjoy Hiedler Gruner Veltliner Loess as a delightful spring/summer aperitif wine and with grilled shrimp, baked halibut, lobster, roast chicken and soft cheeses.
