The 2015 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Wösendorf Kirchweg offers an elegant and aromatic bouquet of ripe and overripe white fruits along with yeasty flavors. Round and smooth on the palate, with fine tannins, good grip and nice bitterness in the finish, this is a full-bodied and elegant Veltliner with a lingering salinity and a stimulating grip.

Picked near the end of October, this smells of ripe apricot and white peach that could come from a Riesling, but accompanied by snap pea and cress. These elements complement one another delightfully on a silken-textured palate that exhibits unexpected lift for a relatively late-picked Smaragd. The richly-sustained finish lends a hint of caramel to the luscious pit fruits, yet there is a striking sense of vibrancy as well as of transparency to stony, crystalline, and iodine-like mineral notes. Crunchy, nippy snap pea and cress rise to the task of invigoration, while a suggestion of shrimp-shell reduction serves to stimulate the salivary glands and encourage, indeed practically compel, the next sip. As Irmgard Hirtzberger points out, since the family's first wine from these vines was a 2010 (and the 2014 fruit was blended into that vintage's Rotes Tor Federspiel), assessments of ageworthiness must be considered tentative. But given our track record with
