Seifried Nelson Grüner Veltliner 2011: "It’s a lovely youthful wine showing delicate aromas of floral, citrus and white peach. The palate is beautifully ripe with bright acidity and a lingering finish. More expressive than most Grüners, this should evolve nicely over the next few years. Grüner Veltliner is a grape from Austria, and has the generosity of Chardonnay and the fragrance of Pinot Gris/Viognier, with a Riesling-like freshness, so it’s a difficult grape to describe but it makes a pretty tasty wine.
Seifried also make other delightful varities: Wurzer, a fragrant white wine with juicy flavours, and Zweigelt, an appealing medium-bodied red with a pleasant dry finish, proving that they are much more than makers of outstanding mainstream wines."
