" 92 points Wine Spectator: "Loads of peach flavor here, accented by floral and white pepper, presented in an elegant, balanced profile. Not a big wine, yet rich and sensuous, teasing you back for more. Fine, mineral-infused finish." (02/04)According to importer Terry Theise, "Privat denotes the best wines of each vintage from each winery. This is always molten, like a primordial magma of Veltliner. The '02 has a wonderful nose of pure ripe Veltliner, less smoky than usual. The palate is mystically complex and shows an almost Zen reserve---he should call it "Zen reserve"---it's more pure GruVe and less extranea; caressing, noble, with wonderfully fine notes of fennel and wet stone.""

3.5 stars "Steely with stone fruit aromas. On the palate, dry, aromatic, with some lively acidity. Very good pairing with spicy indian or asian dishes."
