Pichler Gruner Veltliner Smaragd 2005 Durnsteiner Kellerberg

From one of the most respected wine estates in the Wachau region of Osterreich - FX Pichler. Noticed from a recent trip to NYC that there is an increasing trend towards offering Gruner Veltliner on restaurant wine lists in the city. I really like the stuff, because some of the best examples offer up lovely aromas of white flowers, peaches and white pepper. A shame we don't see more Gruner here in Singapore.

T-notes > Golden, copper-tone in color. In the mouth, bursting with complex flavors of cinnamon, white pepper, honey and kiwi fruit, pomelo, pink grapefruit and persimmons. Real verve in the mid-palate with just exquisite length on the finish. A great wine! :D
