Quite aromatic. White blossom (jasmine?) and soapy on the nose. The first thing that hits you in the mouth is slight frizzante crackle in the mid-palate. It goes away within 10-15 minutes in the glass, but the initial crispiness remains. The problem is it completely disintegrates in the mid palate. Flat as a a dry lake bed. Mysteriously there is a palatable finish, but it appears out of nowhere, only accentuating the limp middle. Aged Grüner Veltiners can be great. This bottle was not one of those examples.
