Austria, Kremstal, Forstrieter Gruner Veltliner Grand Reserve 2010
/ // Funky // Grass, Bread // Grass, Butter, Lemon, Apricot // Light
Compared to the Gruner's we've enjoyed recently, this was strikingly funky, with less of the crisp fruit notes we've come to expect. It's possible it was simply this wine, and without trying others from the same year and vintner, it's impossible to know if the funk was part of the wine production, or simply an anomaly in this bottle.
