Frischengruber 2016 Kirnberg Grüner Veltliner Smaragd

The Kirnberg is from a higher plateau of urgestein/gneiss subsoil with a loess and sand topsoil which gives more powerful grüner veltliner. Georg ferments this in steel to preserve as much freshness as possible, and the result is a powerful, full-bodied wine that is salty and sappy with bright flavors of apple. There is grip and some tannin, but the profile remains lithe and long.
