Recently released: Two new Gruners from our friends at Laurenz V. Thoughts follow.
2011 Laurenz V. Singing Gruner Veltliner – Bigger body than I was expecting, but underneath that, lots of traditional/typical Gruner character: Big apples, pineapple, touches of melon, and plenty of acidity to leave your mouth clean and fresh after each sip. A- / $16
2010 Laurenz V. Charming Gruner Veltliner – A stronger tropical character on the nose, with a rich body to back it up. Easily mistaken for a Sauvignon Blanc, but with more aromatics and a longer finish. Similar to Singing but with extra depth. A-/ $30
