Stage Door ‘White Note’ Grüner Veltliner 2018

One of the top Grüner Veltliners of the Young Gun of Wine blind tasting

“This was Maisano’s top wine, with Puhar also including it in his top-six list. “An unctuous grüner with signature dried herbs, white pepper and fennel seeds. Lively acidity, body and minerality drive the finish. Great expression,” wrote Maisano. “Very fine mineral – stands out for the chalky nose. Nice tight fruit, more in the citrus spectrum with some secondary characters, good intensity,” commented Puhar.”

“Special Value”

“(…).  More emphatic on the palate, with herbal and citrus flavours having energy, the lemon pith-like acidity driving it to a long peppery finish.”
Steven Creber, Halliday Wine Companion 2020
