2015 Wind Ridge Block Gruner Veltliner
Grüner plays well with a warmer vintage, showing richness from warm growing days balancing out spice and herbal notes naturally in the grape. 2015 gave us great warmth, but this wine shows restraint and elegance. The nose shows green apple, talc, tarragon, and pollen, along with the characteristic traits of white pepper and ginger. On the palate we have luscious peach, matcha tea, and creaminess from neutral barrels, paired with lime peel, grapefruit, wet stone and bright salinity from the stainless steel portion. A lovely balance of strength and restraint.
