From a difficult vintage in terms of a highly selective harvest, but not in terms of wine style (there is acidity in the wines and that's what Martin Diwald is looking for) the citrus-colored 2014 Grüner Veltliner Goldberg reflects the longer lees aging (full lees, no sulfur until bottling in January/February), which was necessary due to higher acidity levels that are not chemically corrected here. The wine shows a lovely sur lie bouquet with subtle white fruit and floral aromas, along with beautiful mineral flavors. A serious and grown-up wine. Highly elegant and finesse-full on the palate this is a lean but complex Veltliner with tension and a very long and mineral finish. At this point I cleary prefer it to the 2015, which is still a baby and has to develop its terroir character. The 2014 has a beaitiful bitterness in the finish, which I find extremely stimulating and food-friendly. Very French (Muscadet) style.

Lentil and spinach play against fresh apple and lime in another refreshingly juicy yet texturally rich Diwald offering, this one from heavier soils and older vines than those that dominate his other Grüner Veltliner bottlings. Bacon-like, nutty and earthy notes convey saliva-inducing savor and intrigue in a sustained finish that adds a tang of rhubarb to the themes of lime and apple.
