Lots of green-plum and wild-berry aromas, plus herbal freshness that beautifully balances the considerable power of this unusual Wachau Gruner Veltliner. Great tension through the long finish. From chalk-rich soil, a rarity for the region. Drink or hold. 96 points Stuart Pigott jamessuckling.com From a southwest-facing plot on calcareous soils, the 2017 Ried Liebenberg Gruner Veltliner Smaragd opens with a clear, super ripe and aromatic but coolish, spicy and mineral nose. The attack on the palate is racy and piquant, but the mid-palate is rich and powerful, almost sweet in its rich extract and with a salty-piquant acidity that rejuvenates the wine. 93 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate) Big, rich white of full scent and flavour, ripeness, oily uncutuous texture, concentration and yet appealing supple drinking. Ripe melon, ripe pear and ginger scents, similar to taste, an almost apricot conserve-like character. Geez, this dials in the big experience. You’ll have to strap in, but it’s worth it. 92 points Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
