Lion Grüner Veltliner 2017

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our Pops conductor Keith Lockhart is leading a live-to-picture performance of Star Wars: A New Hope, a showing of the classic 1977 film, with the Orchestra performing Mr. Williams’ iconic score.
For live-to-picture productions, the orchestra performs the entire movie score in real time as the film unspools. (Vocals, dialogue and effects are isolated from the original music track.)
Generally we get to hear Star Wars scores a couple times per season here at Tanglewood, but tonight we get a chance to hear them with the backdrop of the movie (Episode IV) that launched a franchise, to say the least!

I celebrated another full trip around the sun, since my coming into this world, earlier this week. Tonight my wife, some dear friends and me will be enjoying some enticing wines along with our movie night. So notes...maybe, but I'll try!

Fun stuff here. Minty and fresh as heck. Lots of minerality and yet retains a richness that is both agreeable and compelling. Go Brandl fam- in so many ways!!!!! — 4 months ago

The minerality was perhaps my favorite part of this Reisling followed by its artfully blended sweetness and tartness

St. Laurent 2014

Luscious aromas of blackberries, black cherries, salt marshes, black pepper, and bramble reminiscent of a young Cote du Rhone with more subtle notes of baking spices and minerals that remind me of a Pinot Noir. — 2 days ago

On the nose: earth, hay, and white pepper. Pale gold. On the palate it explodes: ripe apricot, yellow peach, Meyer lemon, honey. Long finish, medium (+) acidity. 13.5% alcohol. — 4 days ago

My kind of Gruner! Massive character with loads of minerals that simply excite the palate. A gorgeous, expansive wine. I see the appeal here and could drink this as often as access would allow...which, sadly, won’t allow for a lot. — 9 days ago

Smaragd Honivogl Grüner Veltliner 2015

Fet och koncentrerad. Mogen frukt där skal och stjälk fått åka med. Kanderad citron, vitpeppar och mineral. Känns som flaskan är inne i ett dumt mellanläge nu, skulle nog tjäna på några till års lagring. — 8 days ago

9.0

Limpid onion skin. Bright and sharply focused on the nose, displaying fresh strawberry, citrus pith and floral scents and a hint of minerality. Taut and light on its feet, featuring orange zest, pomegranate and honeysuckle flavors that show very good clarity and spicy cut. Closes taut and brisk, showing very good persistence and a repeating floral note. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2019) — 9 days ago
