See the last note, just add to the fact that this is pretty typical of a Loiben based wine having a warmer climate with likely more loess soils.

Didn't expect to love this as much as I did! Went with fish dinner perfectly and had so much going on. Really enjoyed can't wait to enjoy again

Intense, dense, and weighty in form. Ethereal and airy in content.

Blind I honestly would've said Sauvignon Blanc: gooseberry, citrus with grapefruit rind - I didn't get the sea brine or arugula I usually associate with Gruner, but it was a very crisp and well made wine!
