Anton Bauer 2018 Ried Spiegel Gruner Veltliner
The Spiegel vineyard has loess in addition to gravel and river rock deposits from the old Danube river when it was wild and forming the Wagram. This gives the wine yellow pear flavors, stone fruit, a light pineapple and mango tropical fruit touch, great structure and a very long well balanced finish. The delicate creamy texture and lively, but pleasant, acidity making it a pure joy to drink. Wonderful now, but also has great aging potential.
Yeast, celery and a hint of cream make for an intriguing nose. The palate brings yeasty, savory notes and provides distinct concentration on the slender palate. Lovely, spicy depth and moreishness reign on the salty finish.
