2020 Wachau DAC Ried Schön Grüner Veltliner Smaragd® trocken, Lower Austria/Niederösterreich, Austria

Cool, fine, deep and polished, herbaceous-vegetable and a touch mushroomy scent with bright yellow fruity, somewhat yeasty, nutty and clearly mineral notes. Firmly woven, concentrated, still undeveloped, again bright fruit, very fine acidity, some grip, but also melting, almost creamy juice, certain warmth, red berry nuances, has power and depth, but also finesse, clear, salty minerality, ethereal traces, still undeveloped, very good, firm finish. Great.
