On the palate, the Grüner Veltliner 2012 »Baumpresse« is at peace, clear and pure, also earthy, almost mysteriously dark and stony. It is a meditation wine that can be given plenty of air and time, which then becomes increasingly complex and transparent in its balance of spice, fine stone fruit and light phenolic.

Color

deep golden yellow

Nose

This Grüner Veltliner, with its delicacy and clarity, is certainly something for those who otherwise prefer Riesling. The wine shows an impressively deep, relaxed, darkly spicy nose that oscillates between herbs such as anise, ground stone, cold ash and bruised stone fruit along with some waxy notes. It seems increasingly earthy with air, only slightly vegetal, but cool and lively.

Mouth

On the palate the Grüner Veltliner 2012 "Tree press" Resting in itself, clear and pure, in addition also here earthy, almost mysteriously dark and stony. The spiciness peculiar to the variety is buffered by a fine juiciness. The wine is defined by an almost silky texture on the palate, by a creamy melting and notes that remind of Virginia tobacco. It is a meditation wine that can be given plenty of air and time, which then becomes increasingly complex and transparent in its balance of spice, fine stone fruit and light phenolic.
