Leth “Duett” Riesling & Veltliner 2017 dry white – wine review from the blog Tako Vino

Here is a “mini orchestra” today in the review. An unexpected and rare combination of two German-speaking varieties at once: Riesling and Gruner Veltliner. We got to know him, or rather heard (in relation to the orchestra) this melody for the first time at the Salon of Austrian wines. And so sunk into the soul that the appearance of this post was only a matter of time.

What do we know about each? Riesling – gasoline, rubber, etc. Gruner – pepper, acidity. This is the first thing that comes to mind. Then it turned out what happened.

Riesling is immediately recognizable. But the nuance, the wine was pre-cooled strongly. Further, with the development of other aromas, the oil industry begins to clog and give way to yellow and ripe fruits. 17th year, it would seem: green apple and lime … but no, not only them! The apple turns yellow, with mango and apricot flashing against the background. The same apricot, but with grapefruit and lime in the aftertaste. A very pleasant and unexpected fruit set looms.

It is impossible not to mention Anna. Not every wine specialist will be able to find a subtle mineral note. Boris, of course, is not one of those.

At this moment, for some reason, she remembered Albariño from Spain. Well – so be it!

For such a young and acidic, without aging in oak, the wine turned out to be surprisingly dense. No, this is not an oily chardonnay, but it is by no means water. Light weight, moderate density – if you drink wine unaccompanied.

What have we tried? Pffff! Of course, dumplings with sour cream! Why acidity disappear !? And, you know, successful! Our duet became a quartet: dumplings, sour cream and these “two in one”.

In general, we suggest not to steam too much with compatibility. And experiment! Anyone who can google can drink Chablis oysters. And just like that, take and open a bottle of Years under the pieces of minced meat in the dough – this must be crossed over stereotypes.
