I'm an unabashed fan of Austria's gruner veltliner grape, which produces some of the most complex and satisying dry white wines on the planet. This organic rendition of this variety is crisp, taut and impecably put together. It offers herbal and mineral flavors with touches of lime, citrus peel, white pepper and honey without the sweetness. I'm already a repeat customer for this gem.
From: Niederosterreich, Austria
