04 Hofer, Gruner Veltliner

This is a lively, fresh, envigorating, awesome gruner veltliner--despite the one-liter, crown-capped bottle. The aroma radiates relief from the summer heat, quenching the sinuses with spicy lime and acid-heavy citrus custard. Surprisingly, all of this expands on the long palate as lime turns to green melon, lemon pith, quinine, and an unnerving demand to eat anything with cilantro in it.
