Manfred Felsner coaxes the ripest, creamiest character out of Grüner Veltliner. This single-vineyard wine has an almost unctuous, certainly ultra-smooth texture. Yes, there is a touch of spice, the finish has attractive acidity, but that soft floating texture is the hallmark. Screwcap. Imported by Grape Expectations (CA).
