“Grüner Veltliner, Austria's most well-known white wine, is zesty and fun all year long, but we love it even more in the summer. It has citrus aromas, with a palate that is just a bit spicy and full of refreshing acidity. It's great alongside summer salads and picnic fare, as well as spicy cold noodles.”
For 2011 and 2012 “Both were crisp, refreshing and focused. The 2012 was more upfront nervy and energetic, racy and still tightly wound but packed with citrus and stone fruit flavors with notes of spice and flowers. While tight, you could sense its potential. The 2011 had already mellowed somewhat, become more obviously minerally, and expressive, showing great depth of fruit, while retaining its tension and tight definition, thus giving a more complete picture of the wine's quality and potential.
In my opinion, both of these wines will easily continue to improve for up to ten years. In fact last weekend, back in New York, we opened a 2007 Feldmarschall to celebrate a special occasion. It was elegant, minerally, persistent and layered with flavors of stone, exotic and citrus fruit, just starting to show some nuances of honeyed and savory bottle development. It was a delicious and much enjoyed wine.”

Tre Venti Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Rive di Ogliano Brut DOCG
RECOMMENDED: “Wow, this Prosecco really did bowl me over! Honestly, it has to be one of the very best Prosecco wines that I have tasted in a long while. Focused, taut, and persistent, it will give many a sparkling wine of similar price a good run for its money….Delicate, yet focused nose of subtle floral notes and a strong stony minerality. Crisp, precise, mouth filling with very excellent tension and energy that really lifts the wine.”
