Hiedler/Ludwig Gruner Veltliner Kamptal Thal 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Terry Theise: This '09 has class and character and a detailed fragrance, but it's the palate that's really amazing, with texture and length and spice and a lovely shoot-fire smokiness; a grown-up grace; it made me think of the '99 Champagnes, in fact; a hugely long finish like green beans and lardons and roasted wheat. Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 90 points by Wine Spectator: Elegant, with an effusively spicy aroma and flavors to match. Peach, apricot and guava are joined by plenty of citrus and hints of cream. Sea salt and white pepper linger on the finish. Drink now through 2014.
