2009 Stadt Krems Lössterrassen Grüner Veltliner, Austria
Here we go, another Austrian in the glass. Double decanted, this is so young that it's still fizzy. Bottled under Stelvin . . . should I be worried? Nah. What did worry me was the wine being devoid of varietal character, regional character - matter of fact, any kind of character at all. Am I taking a cudgel to an infant? Perhaps. But the Austrians can do better.
