What to make of Roter Veltliner? It’s an Enigma (thus the name), especially when Florian Schuhmann walks in the door. This wine spent seven days on the skins and was then pressed. On the nose, the wine is smoky and spiced, an extinguished cigarette in a cigar box. Lots of green, sappy, resinous notes, like drinking the middle of a tree, edged with tart red fruits and a rustic kick of acidity and mineral. A most curious wine for curious individuals.
