“A unique grüner veltliner from Prager. Very cool with an intense mirabelle and Reine Claude plum character. The depth on the mid-palate is stunning, but this wine is still very tightly wound and will be better in 2018 or 2019. The super-mineral finish is powerful but sleek.” -- 12/11/2017
"Prager’s stylistic signature is that of aromatic complexity coupled with power and tension. High-density planting and long hang times ensure ripe fruit flavors and power, yet allowing leaves to shade the fruit lend vibrant aromatics of grasses, herbs, and wildflowers. Minerality is a constant feature of any Prager wine. Zwerithaler is a sub-site of Buschenberg and sits to the east of Weiβenkirchen. The name Zwerithaler, meaning "nestled between the valleys," is a near monopole of Weingut Prager. It has a complex soil of paragneiss with alternating layers of dark and calcareous rock. Zwerithaler Kammergut is a 0.34-hectare parcel planted before WWI. The wine from these ungrafted, 100-year-old vines was bottled separately by Prager for the first time in 2015." -- Winery
