Alzinger "Ried Steinertal" Smaragd Gruner Veltliner 2017
Varietal: Gruner Veltliner
Sub-Region: Wachau
Region: Niederosterreich
Color: White
Country/State: Austria
95 Wine Enthusiast (3/1/2019) "Aromatic notes of ripe pear flesh and peel have a yeasty, sonorous edge on the nose. The palate joins both fruit and yeast in a lovely, textured core that reveals salty, almost bitter miso and echoes of deep savoriness. Pithy citrus lends even more mouthfeel. A wonderfully concentrated, complex wine that deserves some bottle age. Drink 2020-2035. Cellar Selection."
94 James Suckling (10/9/2018) "Although this has some exotic-fruit aromas, the nose is also cool and minty. As succulent as it is elegant, this striking grüner veltliner finishes with an impressive mineral crescendo. Drink or hold."
95 Wine Spectator (3/31/2019) "Fabulous aromas of oolong tea and vanilla bean turn to pineapple, grapefruit and savory mineral detail on the palate in this exquisite Gruner Veltliner. Viscous, yet vibrant, this shows some spice on the finish. Brilliantly harmonious, yet should show even more with some age. Best from 2021 through 2031. 140 cases imported."

We are in Westridge Court, at the intersection of Rt. 59 and Aurora Avenue. Our center is on the east side of Rt. 59 on the part of the center that faces Aurora Avenue. We are 200 feet to the west of Ulta Cosmetics and around 200 yards southeast of the Hollywood Palms Cinema. The layout of the center is a bit confusing so just give us a call if you need directions.

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
