Pale in color with a slightly earthy nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some dry crisp notes along with some nice minerality. There’s a hint of earthy notes to match the nose. It bears some slight resemblance to a riesling. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice citrus notes. I would give it an 88 or so, not a bad Gruner but not an outstanding one either.
