Average critic rating : 95.0 points



The 2013 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Wachstum Bodenstein offers an impressive, clear, precise and fresh bouquet indicating a deep minerality and great complexity. Full-bodied and intense on the palate, this is a remarkable, elegant and well-balanced, sophisticated wine of great expression and personality. Beautifully concentrated, but always subtle and conscious of its own finesse and beauty, this is surely one of the greatest Vetliners of the vintage in all Austria. ||Toni Bodenstein has bottled great Smaragd wines from the 2013 vintage. These are world-class wines and I wonder if there were any better wines produced in this great though difficult vintage. All of his Smaragd wines have a remarkable greenish shimmering white-golden color, which already indicates their reductive style and mineral expression. If you have a chance to taste the Achleiten Stockkultur Grüner Veltliner Smaragd, you should definitely taste it over several days. This might be one of the greatest Gruners I have ever tasted. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015
