2012 Leth Gruner Veltliner
From: Wagram, Austria
Serve with: Roasted poultry, salmon with cream sauce
This is an especially rich, creamy version of this classic Austrian white wine variety. It's basically dry but with a hint of sweetness. Its lush texture is reminiscent of a top-flight Alsace pinot gris, but at a more affordable price. This wine is bursting with flavors of honey, peach, pears, orange, lime and mulling spices. It's a very impressive wine from a producer I haven't seen before. Imported by Domaine Select Wine Estates.
