2009 Lössterrassen

2009 Stadt Krems Grüner Veltliner

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.
