John Wilson features Herbet Zillinger's Grüner Veltliner wines
John Wilson, wine scribe for The Irish Times, has written up a great profile of Zillinger, a super producer from Austria.
I have tasted the wines of Herbert Zillinger three times over the last year or so. On each occasion I have been blown away by them.
Here are a few of his comments on the Zillinger wines we stock.
Tight and closed at first, but then explodes with flavour; layers of textured ripe green fruits, lots of ginger spice, and a dry finish. 17/20
Intense ripe peaches and apricots, with spice aplenty, a very mineral backbone and long finish. Gorgeous wine. 17.5/20
And there are others! We also have the following, not mentioned in John Wilson's article, but which I think are really, really, wort a look!
