SCHMELZ FEDERSPIEL GRÜNER VELTLINER 2007

I picked this one up just because it looked interesting/different. Something I had not had before. The description is quite accurate. I did get Apricot off the tastes just as the description below says. This is a very Reisling like wine of the Kabinett style. A lovely easy drinking wine. 91 is a bit generous but 89 easily.

Tasting Note
Pale green-yellow. Apricot and crushed green peppercorn along with a hint of lemon thyme on the nose. Taut and minerally in the mouth, with firm acid spine framing the apricot, yellow apple and subtle tobacco flavors and extending the finish. Quite appetizing. Drink now to 2013. Score – 91. (Peter Moser, International Wine Cellar, Nov./Dec. 2008)
