Gschweicher 2011 Grüner Veltliner

Röshitz, Austria; 12.0% ABV
$5 at the Berkeley, CA, store a few days ago.  Plenty there.

Gschweicher_2011_GrunerVeltlinerWe don’t see Grüner Veltliner much at the GO, I had run out of white, and Weinish liked it, so…  I thought the wine was pretty good but not exceptional.  It showed typical GV flavors of yellow apple and lemon, with some minerality and a touch of white pepper.  The taste was longish and even.

The next day, the rest in the bottle was less balanced.  The fruit, acid, and white pepper were all a little stronger.  Still tasty, but unless you’re especially fond of the varietal, I would guess it’s not particularly exciting.
