Stadt Krems Grüner Veltliner 2015

Pale in color with a nice crisp nose. On the mid palate the wine displays lovely crisp dry notes to match the nose. On the finish the wine displays some mild pink grapefruit note and some nice acidity. The complexity of the wine is better explored without food. This is a super food friendly wine that could go almost anywhere a sauv blanc would go. A very nice wine. A bit on the milder side. I would give it an 88 or so. I enjoy Grüner Veltliner if for no other reason than variety! Full bodied and rich (is how the LCBO describe it). Huh?

From the LCBO web site:
Stadt Krems Grüner Veltliner 2015 — VINTAGES#: 295626
STYLE – Full-bodied & Rich
A rather closed nose wants to give little away, but the palate is zingy with yeast, grapefruit peel and fresh, greenish leafiness, all held with focus and poise. Very refreshing. Best Buy. Score – 90. (Anne Krebiehl, MW, Wine Enthusiast, July 2016) $16.95
