2014 Grüner Veltliner

Manni Nössing

2014 Grüner Veltliner Manni Nössing - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



For this month’s installation of our nod to civilized living, we start, as is our custom, with a white wine. In this case we climb high into the Dolomites of Südtirol, in country that is almost as much Austrian as Italian. Manni Nössing likes to age his Grüner in a combination of stainless steel and large, oval acacia foudres. The foudres round out the chiseled, stony edges of the wine nicely and accentuate a nice touch of honey on the nose. Is it acacia honey? It doesn’t stay honeyed for long. Citrusy, flinty, and explosive, this wine is cut out of the mountain, much like Michelangelo shaped blocks of marble from the great quarries of Carrara. You’ll love the flavor, crystal-clear purity, and precise craftsmanship of this great northern Italian wonder. –Dixon Brooke
