Germany, Gruner Veltliner
Knoll Gruner Veltliner Loibner Federspiel 2020Yellow 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
