White wine. Wachau, Austria. Sustainable. 100% Grüner Veltliner. "Fermented in a large oak Fuder, the 2016 Loibner Grüner Veltliner Ried Loibenberg was picked very early (around the 10th of October), far earlier than its peers. Bottled in June, this is a beautifully precise and elegantly flavored Veltliner that is much more terroir-driven than fruit-driven. The wine shows a ripe but flinty flavored nose that indicates great purity. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, elegant and enormously salty Loibenberg with great intensity but also tension, finesse and purity. This has fine tannins and a stunningly complex finish—one of the very best Loibenbergs of the vintage." — 94 Points, Stephen Reinhardt, Wine Advocate #232 (Au. 2017)
