Average critic rating : 92.0 points



The 2015 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Spitzer Rotes Tor comes predominantly from gneiss soils and offers a lovely fine and coolish/stony bouquet with ripe apple and some lemon aromas which lead to a full-bodied, fresh and very elegant, very complex and lingering salty palate with a great purity and mineral expression. A stunningly intense and finesse-full GV with a great aging potential. Jun 2016, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2016-2028



Ripe white peach, pear and papaya on the nose are mingled with smoky black tea and tobacco. Correspondingly luscious fruitiness and pungent smokiness inform a glossy, expansive palate, joined by piquantly nutty, mineral and positively vegetal suggestions of wilted spinach. An admirable sense of primary juiciness follows this beauty all the way through to a long finish invigorating in its pungent smokiness and peppery bite. While a portion was picked in October, the rest didn't come in until November 16. Yet alcohol ended up only in the upper 13s. Feb 2017, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2017-2028
