Alzinger Gruner Veltliner 'Muhlpoint' Smaragd Wachau 2017
Alzinger’s 11 hectares of vines span some of Austria’s greatest growing sites, including Steinertal and Loibenberg. All of the estate’s fruit is whole-cluster crushed and sees short macerations, creating elegant wines of pristine quality. The ‘Muhlpoint’ Gruner is firm and spicy, showing notes of tropical fruit and white pepper. For zesty acidity and grippy backbone, this is your go-to bottle!
The land of Schwartzenegger and strudel delivers ethereal, electric whites along the Danube, but Grüner and Riesling aren't the whole story; its savory, mineral, lightweight reds can be revelatory.
