2013GeyerhofGV2013 Weingut Geyerhof, Gruner Veltliner, Hoher Rain, Kremstal, Austria.
This electric and dynamic Gruner is a beauty, with lively acidity and crunchy minerals this wine sizzles with vivid fruit and vibrant intensity, made by the family Maier and done all biodynamic. The Hoher Rain Cru is a lovely wine, made from nature, it shows precise terroir and finesse, it was fermented using native yeast and it comes from sandy loam, mixed soils and deep loess, it is a very cool site and the extraordinary minerality and stony essences shine through, this is pure as pure gets. the fruit is subtle with hints of lemon/lime, green melon, white peach and grapefruit core along with a salty taste and hints of bitter almond and Chablis like steely elements, plus wet chalk and gravel notes. This standout Gruner would be an excellent choice with oysters and appetizers as well as being appealing as an afternoon picnic wine and an Indian summer sipper. These 2013 Austrian whites from the Danube region, not far from Vienna, either Wachau or Kremstal are showing fantastic, this is a great vintage and the Gruners are especially stunning and this Geyerhof is absolutely delicious and a stellar example of place and varietal, if you find this wine you’ll be rewarded with much joy and pleasure. Drink from 2014 to 2018.
