wine enthusiast 87 pts"The nose is neutral and gives little away. The palate is light, dry but also pleasantly fresh. The wine is unobtrusive, light and dry but rather refreshing. - Anne KREBIEHL MW"

wine enthusiast 87 pts"Subtle notes of ripe yellow pear on the nose are toned down by lemon freshness on the light easy-drinking dry palate. Lots of verve and juiciness make for an ideal aperitif or party wine."

wine enthusiast 88 pts"Green pear and balm-like hints of aloe vera appear first on the palate then are followed by softly spiced and slightly peppery citrus notes that also provide some welcomed texture. A lovely, easy-drinking Grüner."

wa300"Slightly more intense than the 2012 Grüner Veltliner is the 2014 Wimmer Grüner Veltliner, another 1,000-mililiter packaged bottle selling for a song. Plenty of lime notes intermixed with grapefruit, a hint of tangerine, and apple are all present in this fresh, well-focused, zesty wine. Drink it over the next year."

wa300"The 2012 Gruner Veltliner exhibits a spicy, peppery nose displaying hints of citrus and honeyed grapefruit. This pleasant, dry, crisp white is a noteworthy value, especially for a liter bottle. Consume it over the next year. "

beverage dynamics"There is a nice mineral aspect in the nose and even a salty, saline-like note mingling with fresh squeezed lime aromas; light to medium bodied and quite crisp, with a pretty array of fresh citrus flavors."

wa300"An outstanding bargain from this Austrian producer located in the southern part of Weinvertel, this should turn out to be a hugely popular wine, given the price point and the liter-sized bottle. Loads of wet rocks, crushed chalk and honeyed grapefruit as well as touches of apricots and apple skin are all present in this aromatic, light to medium-bodied, fresh, dry, zesty wine. Drink it over the next 1-2 years."
