Amen, Bill - Amen!!
I agree with you totally. And I am perennially enthralled by whites that fit your description. I love, love, love, bone-dry, substantial whites. Unfortunately, we do get a fair amount of thin and inoffensive (or aggressively mediocre) GV in Ontario. The Steininger, however, sounds divine - a true zenith of a GV.
Thanks for the inspiring note.
