2017 Solminer Wines Grüner Veltliner - USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Ynez Valley (3/12/2019)
-- popped and poured --
-- tasted non-blind over 2 – 3 hours --
-- Diam 5 closure --

NOSE: moderately vegetal; lychee.

BODY: medium-light bodied; medium-light maize color.

TASTE: lychee; straightforward; hint of sulphur (?) or underbrush; 13.3% alc. not noticeable; it's good, but it's twice as expensive as I'd like it to be. Gut impression score: mid 80's.
