Taste profile from the winemaker: "A classic straight Grüner Veltliner with typical notes of white pepper and grapefruit. Dry, light and fruity, it is a typical Wachau."

ABC Wines review: This wine has aromas of green apple and citrus that are carried forward to the palate which adds fresh, brisk acidity. There is not much follow-through, however, in the somewhat disappointing finish. A good summer wine that can be served with a wide variety of light dishes. Our score: In general, a decent wine but rather expensive. Average at this price.

Winery website: Domäne Wachau. Note: The image of the bottle is for the 2007 vintage.
