TN: '04 Jamek GV


With a dinner tonight of Thai mango salad and green curry:
2004 Jamek Grüner Veltliner Federspiel "Stein am Rain"
color: golden yellow tinged with green nose: white pepper, gree peas, honey and flowers palate: initially, a bit oxidized, later turning into tropical fruit and minerals
Surprisingly, this wine was quite a heavyweight for a Federspiel, but stood up beautifully to the food. It was listed as 12% ABV, but seemed on a par with several Smaragd GVs that I've had over the past few years. All in all, a beautiful wine that I wish I had more of.

May I be crude and ask how much this was? I liked the one or two Jamek wines I've tried, but their pricing seemed a bit more aggressive than other Wachau producers. Thanks for notes

Dale, I wish that I could tell you. There was no pricetag on the bottle and I don't record purchase price in my database. In fact, I'm not even sure where I got this bottle, as it lacked a Sam's sticker. I'd guess that it was a case-filler from either CSW or Crush, but that's the best I can do. From my own attitude, I know that I wouldn't have paid more than $20 for a Federspiel GV.

That would be about 10USD, with transport and taxes and profits easily 20USD, I believe... Anders
