Monthly WTF group recap. Theme this month was “bring something special”. Normally we taste all of the wines blind, but we decided to do a relaxed night with amazing wines at a great restaurant. Spectacular evening!

I had the ‘15 a few months back and this seems much more fresh! Just a killer example of gruner. Classic. Smells of white pepper and a freshly opened can of green beans (weird, I know). There is even a creamy nature to this on the palate. Hay, chalk, limestone and bright stone fruits. Wonderful. Thanks

Freiheit Grüner Veltliner

Bursting with bright flavor and a little zing in the mouthfeel. Definitely the best Grüner I’ve had. Will get more. — 16 days ago

Ried Gmirk Grüner Veltliner 2018

Good, if a bit simple. On the nose, lemons and wet rocks. In the mouth, bright citrus, white pepper and acidity. Decent length. Decent QPR. — 8 days ago

Ried Achleithen Smaragd Riesling 2017

Love this. How could I not? If kittens were dancing to NIN in could not step away any more than I could this, which was very bright and blistering of honey, apples and orange blossom. If blossoms can bluster. Terrific fun in a bottle. — 9 days ago

@Severn Goodwin but isn’t there that story The Owl and the Pussycat? I don’t remember if they got along in it though. Hmmm

Mineral driven white. Straw gold color. Yellow apple with a hint of pink grapefruit and lime zest. Lots of acidity and brightness. Great body and balance. Quite good. Thanks John — 18 days ago

Fully mature. Stone fruit, white pepper, celery and citrus pith. Really fun wine but was probably peaking about 2 years ago. — 2 days ago
