2007 Laurenz und Sophie, Niederosterrich, Austria, Singin Gruner Veltliner

Name: Laurenz und Sophie
Country: Niederosterrich, Austria
Grape(s): Gruner Veltliner
Vintage: 2007
Colour: a light bright lemon colour. Quite bubbly too??
Smell: This had a very busy aroma. There were lots of levels and notes that made our initial introduction into this Austrian wine quite exciting. We had earthy, damp notes. There was smokiness as well along with a fruity citrus hint, particularly gooseberries. With all these aromas, my flavour expectations were a bit confused.
Taste: A dry, low acidity and light body. This was a very fruity flavour. We could taste gooseberries, green apples and grapefruits. Disappointingly this had a very short length. It also had this fizzy flavour aswell….weird!!

Conclusion: It was a good wine.

WINDEX: 7 out of 10.

Final Comments: Again this was a first for me. I had never drunk wine from Austria and so as a first impression it was really good. It tasted from very springing and fresh and was ready to show itself off. This was would be great either as stand alone sipping wine or even as part of a meal.
