Yellow fruit with a whiff of fennel and radish spiciness. It has a fleshy feel and powdery texture, bright acidity, lemon zest, a nutty and saline character, a hit of pepper, and a gently bitter finish of excellent length. Weighty, but still kind of light on its feet. Always a lovely drink, and so it is in 2020. GARY WALSH, The Wine Front August 2021

2020 Emmerich Knoll Grüner Veltliner Loibner Federspiel is classified as Ortswein (village wine) and comes from various sites around the family home.
