Fine aromatic nose with elegant fruit, subtle minerality, delicately juicy with a firm acid structure, fresh and radiant, long, well-balanced finish, appealing and lively. Full bodied and a lingering finish.
Pairs well with many cuisines such as oyster, sushi, sashimi, and seafood in general.
"Pear-drop, lemon and fresh pear notes are immediate on the inviting nose. The palate is fresh, bright, light and dry while the pear flavors are enlivened by a little spritz. - ANNE KREBIEHL MW."

"Green pear fruit has an almost creamy aspect on the nose. The palate is ultralight, dry but very refreshing with it lemon and pear combo. - Anne KREBIEHL MW"

"Slightly muddied notes of pear appear on the nose. On the dry light palate it is lemon that takes over and adds welcome verve and liveliness. Very refreshing and easy with a dry finish."

"Summer where art thou? This zippy, simple but ultrarefreshing and light-bodied Grüner, with green pear crispness, is just the thing for hot days. Drink soon."

"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."

"Ripe Concord pear and an intriguing, phenolic mouthfeel combine in this highly drinkable light white. There is enough weight to support food and a pleasing hint of savoriness as well as depth." - Anne Krebiehl, MW"
