Brundlmayer L+T Gruner Veltliner 2019
"This one is out-of-this-world; a fragrance as complex as Muscat can be; currant, bergamot, wisteria; the palate is cooler and spicier than the aroma suggests, with an opalbasil face almost like Müller-Catoir’s Muscats; there’s a stubborn length and a refusal to yield to simplicity; in fact there’s bouquet-garni and some serious minerality here."
- notes by Terry Theise
93 Points - "The grapes for his 2007 Gelber Muskateller were the last Brundlmayer harvested that year, which he says is typical for this grape, whether the wine is nobly sweet (as it was in 2006) or adamantly dry (as in the present instance). A stunningly multi-faceted nose for this variety features basil, lavender, bergamot, roasted eggplant, caraway and pepper, setting one up for an equally improbably oily-rich, full palate (despite only 12.6% alcohol) in which the aforementioned players cavort with aromatic abandon, leading to a finish of slam dunk clarity, pungency, and decisiveness."

Anything that "stinks up your house when you are cooking it," Terry Theise. Asian food, ham, smoked meats or fish.
