Rarely do you find a gruner with this kind of balance. Vibrant and expressive from the start - Fresh cut lemon, pickle brine, smashed white pepper and minerality that doesn't quit. The acid is persistent and unrelenting, making for a beautiful finish that refuses to let go.

Pure. White pepper, great back end of acidity. But round and full bodied on attack. What a treat.

Classic example of Gruner. Mineral, lentils, crunchy green vegetables, M+ acid. Delicious and perfect for blind tasting

Just not nearly as good as it should have been. Acid was low, Flavors muted. Almost seemed corked, but was not.
