Reviews and Ratings

Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Nice aromatic nose with hints of oranges and fresh apples,and some pepper.
Crisp and fresh,with a lovely mouthfeel and some length.
Oyster and cheese platter wine. Or by itself.
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pale straw colour. Classic Grüner aromatics of white pepper and vegetal notes mingle with ripe apple and subtly toasted notes on the nose. The zesty acidity is nicely balanced by concentrated orchard and citrus fruit flavours. Clean, focused and precise.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A beautiful Austrian Gruner. Light bodied, crisp, tight and slightly tart. Lime zest, red grapefruit, lemongrass, minerality. Medium plus acidity and fruit. Pairs well with baked white fish in banana leaf and plantain. I’d love to enjoy this with fried calamari or other favourite fried appetizers. Tasted 2016 in Jan 2018. 90 points
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Good acidity, green apple, tons of citrus (grapefruit and lemon), a bit of stonefruit and a clean finish. A great starter to get those taste buds primed and salivating.
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Crystal clear robe. Citrus nose with floral notes. Nice acidity, very straight forward wine. Another great grab from Austria. Good quality/price. Pair it with poultry.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Refreshing white grapefruit and lime aromas and flavours, with juicy acidity that makes it just right for shellfish.
Tasted March 2017
Philippe Perreault - Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

Clear yellow color.

Aromas of honey and white flower.

This wine is light bodied, delicate and short on the palate.

Take it like aperitif.
Serve it at 12-13 degrees.
Ready to drink now.
