The Alzinger 2012 Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Loibenberg is richer and texturally more alluring – subtly creamy – than its Muhlpoint counterpart, bringing to bear marine mineral, stony and peppery impingements on a matrix of sweet pea, green bean and white peach, then adding coffee, cardamom and nutmeg that accentuate the sweet side of this wine’s sheer ripeness. Fortunately, it retains a refreshing primary juiciness in a long finish to complement its richness; and there is not the slightest hint of weightiness or heat. I would plan on following this through at least 2020.
