Loimer Langeloiser Spiegel Grüner Veltliner 1995

Member Review by atonalprime:

Gift from coworker. Major seepage had occured at some point, and I had to scrape/wash a black layer off the top of the cork (which then broke in half as I pulled it out...luckily I managed to get all the cork out without breaking it again. It was worth the patience and effort to open this wine. Drank over over 3-4 hours. A lemon-floral perfume developed, full-bodied, crisp and bold citrus flavors with notes of butter and pineapple on the palette. hints of petrol and oak. While I've had the Gruner Veltliner grape before, I don't think I had tasted a wine that so closely resembled the finest Chardonnays I've had in the past.
