White wine. Wachau, Austria. Sustainable. 100% Grüner Veltliner. "This represents a very small quantity from a clearly special vineyard described in my coverage of the corresponding 2013. Krutzler says he would have preferred to have picked at a lower must weight, but things were happening fast and his priority was to get his Superin harvested, since it represents a much larger volume and thus serves as a calling card for the estate. One effect of malolactic transition has been a pleasant creaminess, but that hasn’t deprived the wine of cut, stimulation or refreshment. Juicy apple and honeydew melon are coolingly suffused with green herbs. Stony and alkaline notes, invigoratingly incisive white pepper and a glow of peach kernel piquancy combine on an impressively sustained finish." — 91-92 Points, David Schildknecht, Vinous (February 2017)
