This was my very first Grüner Veltliner, estate bottled no less, and it was kind of a disappointment. It had a lovely green tinted, golden straw color. The nose vacillated between bread-doughy and buttery. Doughiness on the palate, not much fruit, hardly any finish, and somewhat flabby. If I had tried this blind, I would have said "cheap California Chardonnay."
Fortunately the experiment did not cost anything as the bottle was a gift.
