This was also the first time to taste and drink a Roter Veltliner, in this case a 2006 Leth Scheiben Lagenreserve. Very aromatic with some resemblance to Gruner Veltliner but more of a stone fruit, unripe peach aspect to it. The taste was grassy and fruity. Good acid, but still somewhat soft. Finish was a bit short. The bottom line to me was that it was a coarse version of Gruner and for the same price I'll stick with the better and more available wine. Still, I would try a couple more Roters because I hate passing judgment based on one bottle.
