"Those fortunate wine drinkers who have been exposed to Austria’s modern array of intensely pure, dry (trocken) wines know that in many ways they have more in common with Alsace than with Germany, while having their own distinct, finely etched personality." - The World Atlas of Wine Sixth Edition, Hugh Johnson & Jancis Robinson.

2014 Grüner Veltliner NIGL 2014 Grüner Veltliner Freiheit NIGL

Consistently one of our favorite Grüner Veltliners, Nigl has struck gold again with the lovely 2014 Freiheit ("Freedom") bottling. Blended from three parcels, fermented with the stems using ambient yeast, settled using gravity, racked twice but never fined or filtered. For such a hands-off approach, the wine is remarkably pure and precise. While lesser Grüner often seems simply citrusy, this wine delivers underpinnings of guava and papya, racy acid and minerals along with classic green peppercorn notes. Factor in the new low price and this is one of the best white wine values around! - Dean Schlabowske, The Austin Wine Merchant.
