Pfaffl, Hommage, Grüner Veltliner, Weinviertel DAC Reserve, 2015, white dry wine, Weinviertel, Austria, 5,0 of 5,0 NJP (100 points of 100 points)  (23-04-2016 by Nenad Jelisic)


Wow, what the wonderful and complex aroma and flavour, which grows in the glass every minute. This is the best Grüner Veltliner wine that I have tried so far. It says a lot that since 2012 NJ Wines has given 5,0 NJP to just one more wine. I can not get enough of the wine's aroma; it is as a wonderful exotic perfume. Here we talk about really distinct aromas and flavours of sweet spices, honeydew, yellow ripe pears, lime, herbs and white mulberries. The wine’s high and complex richness hides, in the beginning, the acidity and the minerality of the wine, but they emerge very clearly in the eternal long aftertaste. The vines, which are used for Pfaffl Hommage Grüner Veltliner are about 50 years old, grow on a soil that consists of loess, sand and flysch. The grapes for the wine are carefully selected in both the field and the cellar, and then destemmed and crushed very gently. The crushed mass (must) consisting of grape juice, pulp, skins and seeds is macerated for 10 hours and then pressed. Both the fermentation and the aging take place in the large acacia barrels, and after 12 months, the wine is ready to be bottled. Drink the wine at 8 to 10°C with grilled salmon with buttery mashed potatoes and white wine sauce or with creamy fish and shellfish soup or with soft flatbread with Philadelphia cream cheese, a little horseradish and smoked salmon (preferably not farmed salmon). Pfaffl Hommage Grüner Veltliner 20015 can be aged for up to 10 years.
