2000 Weingut Prager Gruner Veltliner Auslese Achleiten
Producer: Weingut Prager
Style: White Wine
Grape Type: other white varietal
no stars Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2001
($33; from cask) This wine was the repository for the botrytis-affected berries in the Achleiten. The peachiness is more yellow here vis-a-vis the corresponding Smaragd and there is a strong coffee-mocha cast to the fruit. The palate feel is glossy, glycerine-rich, almost oily. Poached peach and ginger flavors feature in a strong, long finish in which the characteristic schistic minerality of Achleiten is also present. The residual sugar is balanced by acidity that significantly increased under the influence of botrytis. 1 star.
