Lenz Moser Prestige 2016 is a vibrant Gruner Veltliner from the Niederösterreich in Austria. Lots of juicy, mouth-watering acidity to pair with fresh seafood and shellfish. Look for tropical aromas and flavors of pineapple, passion fruit, and honeydew melon with a satiny, vibrant finish. Chill and enjoy now with grilled seafood.

Reviews and Ratings

Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Nose: flinty smoky minerality mixed with lemon zest, Granny Smith apple, lime
Palate: Uber crisp acidity, the nose reflected on the palate, light bodied, lasting finish, great value!
Pair with: salads with tangy and or creamy dressings, creamy goat cheeses, simply baked or pan fried white fish with lemon, pesto based garlicky dishes with white meats or veggies.
Jennifer Carter rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Fresh tropical fruit flavours, pineapple and passion fruit. The colour is very pale almost like water, but it does not lack in flavour. So fresh and crisp with mouth watering acidity.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Citrus and tropical fruit aromas with lemon, pineapple and slight honeydew melon notes. Very crisp with great acidity throughout. Tasted November 2018.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A pretty pale lemon green colour with bright fragrant aromas of grapefruit citrus, lemon grass, green apples, and fresh herbs. Flavours reveal crisp bright acidity, pear and lime zest. Very nice! This would be a perfect match for seafood ceviche and shrimp tacos. - tasted November 2018
Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

green apple, fresh, a bit grassy. Very clean on the palate with gentle acidity. A refreshing wine that will go nicely with salad dishes.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Fantastic value in this mouthwatering Austrian Gruner. Straw with green hue. Great cool climate acidity, green melon, lime zest, hint of white pepper. Pair with Thai chicken stir fry and jasmine rice. Tasted 2016 vintage in November 2018. 89 points
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Very aromatic for this usually very fresh and light grape varietal. As intense the aromas of fruit - green apple, guava, pineapple - it is equally as fresh and lively with a bracing acidity, notes of lemon, lime, lime zest, fresh basil, bell pepper, and slightly salty-bitter notes of olive, Great good wine, would go well with white fish in a simple lemon-olive oil-pepper dressing; would also hold up well against something rich and creamy like a seafood chowder to cut through the richness.
Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Grassy aromas with green apple. Crisp sour notes of lime and green apple. Very zippy acidity and light bodied on the mouth.

Pair with a light fish like sole or mahi mahi with a sauce that is citrus based. Also would pair well with goat cheese as the wine has lots of acidity.

Prestige 2016 is a great value, zesty, vibrant Gruner Veltliner from the Niederösterreich in Austria produced by Lenz Moser. Lots of juicy, mouth-watering acidity to pair with fresh seafood and shellfish. Pale straw in the glass, on the nose there is tropical and ripe lemon notes with more of the same on the palate. So fresh and zesty. Chill and enjoy now with grilled fish dishes. - Community Wine Reviews
