Effervescent,bubbly etc were the responses when I went around the table asking a group of non-serious wine drinkers for a 1st impression. Wonderful lemon and lime flavors painted with peach, apricot, and herbs . Great with our Greek food and a very solid Q/PR — 4 days ago
Such a classic & so full of grunerosity: canned green beans, butter lettuce and loads of lime on the nose. On the palate, more of the same, plus some underripe tropical fruit and a pleasant hint of citrus pith. It’s the texture that gets me on this wine—almost inappropriately supple. Opened last night but think it’s drinking even better on day 2.

Vintage 2018 | Grand grüner veltliner, minerality, freshness. I find this a difficult grape. But my goodness what a joy if you taste a ‘Grand’ grüner veltliner. A bit, a little bit, sweetness, awesome balance. I have got no GV in the cellar, but must reconsider this.. for sure | paired with red mullet | at Monarh — 3 days ago
Intriguing as was described by a local wine merchant as not attracting enough American drinkers so importers were dropping from their portfolios. I can see why: it’s subtle, with green tones to wildflower, avocado pit, and unripe white peach. A broad minerality on the palate with good intensity. The best analogy is that it’s relationship to Gruner Veltliner is like Aligote to Burgundy Chardonnay— a lesser cousin, but still delicious in its own way when made right, which this is. I would revisit, especially since under 20$. — 21 days ago
Surprising amount of tropical fruit aromas. Really quite delicious and not too young with some time in the glass. Wonderful depth and mouthfeel and excellent excellent crispy acid. Hint of off dry. Really a very nice wine.
Note: this is actually Gruner, not Riesling. — 5 days ago
Our 2019 edition had Chremisa in large letters on the bottle and it was fabulous. It was different than any Gruner we’ve had. — a month ago
