Loimer 1997 Langenloiser Spiegel Grüner Veltliner “Alte Reben” (Kamptal) – Ripe and fairly mature, with celery and sweet apricot. Is there botrytis in this wine? Cream-textured and rich, though perhaps lacking some length. Tasty. (3/05)

Cat scratch grüner

[bottles]Loimer 2007 Grüner Veltliner “Cuvée Cat for B&G Oysters” (Langenlois) – Peppery to the point of overt spiciness, with the momentary sensation of a prickly fizz and an angular mouthfeel. Though I prefer a richer, more mineralistic style of grüner, this is fine and authentic in its own style, and a very appealing companion with food. (8/08)
