93 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: "[$28 list] When his pioneering wine family sold off its large brands, John Niven started his own small project, and the early results are stunning. Best is this Gruner Veltliner, which begins with clean and sharp aromas of lime skin, white pepper and green apple peels. The palate is tense and green in pome and citrus fruits, with a touch of briny kelp that coasts into the acid-driven finish. Alcohol 14.2%. (Dec 2020)"

91 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "[$28 list] Translucent yellow. A deeply scented nose presents pear skin, pineapple, Meyer lemon and melon aromas, along with subtle herb and floral nuances. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering spice-tinged citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a fennel nuance that builds through the midpalate. Finishes dry and silky, with very good persistence and lingering florality. Drink: 2021-2024. (Jan 2021)"

Producer notes: "[$28 list] This is a super interesting wine. It has a harmonious balance of ripeness but a ton of verve and energy on the palate. A base of salty citrus, ginger and white pepper mingle with grapefruit that all lead to a savory zesty finish drenched in minerality. This wine touches both sides of the Grüner spectrum, bright, fresh and vibrant along with texture and a fullness that showcases what makes Edna Valley white wines unique. Alcohol 14.2%. 285 cases produced."
