On the way more herbaceous and white pepper side. Fruit hard to find. Compelling wine for food pairing — 3 months ago

Really excellent. Restrained and tense. 12%. Minerals, some citrus and white fruit, some smokiness. Wonderful cut. — a month ago

Surprising to say the least. Basically a village wine, but it showed complexity, density, and drive beyond its classification. Excellent value! — 2 months ago

A bargain for aGrüner of this quality - Apple, lemon, lime, wet stone, flint, candle wax, thyme, and hay. The fruit and minerality is balanced by vibrant acidity and a lovely creamy texture. Terrific food wine. Medium plus finish — 2 months ago

Loibner Loibenberg Smaragd Grüner Veltliner 2021

The unlikely winner of our lunch wine shootout by sheer virtue of being properly stored. I say “unlikely” because in my experience Gruner tends to be the lesser grape when presented with Rieslings. Plus, a youthful Smaragd typically isn’t up my alley - they’re usually too rich and oily for effortless drinking. Although admittedly so here, the Knoll still trumped the Rieslings for being fresher. I’d take exotic fruits, candied ginger, less acidity and oily texture any day over heavy petrol notes. But don’t get me wrong. The Knoll was still an excellent wine. It wasn’t just a case of “losers can’t be choosers”. It was layered and had plenty to offer over lunch. Air brought about some interesting lemongrass and kafir lime notes, as well as a stony minerality. In the end, I was grateful for its presence, shedding some light to an otherwise woeful wine showing. — 2 months ago

I agree about Gruner. Not one of my faves. Disappointing about the tainted Rieslings 😢
