This was just a terrific way to start out the day. An excellent white that would pair well with water crackers, sharp cheeses - maybe an aged manchego.
Great white wine!
At first taste it might seem a bit watery, but after a few drinks you find a nice finish. Very clean taste!
Great Flavor for a Great Price!

very light and dry
Very Different Wine
"Thumper" said it right -- this wine is different and has a slight "effervescent" twist to it. I think that's what makes this wine different -- clean, crisp, light bodied and slightly effervescent. Almost conforms to anything you serve it with; very versatile.
A Favorite House White
This refreshing white was the house wine of a wonderful hotel where I vacationed in Austria. It's a nice alternative to dry Riesling - a bit crisper. I drank gallons of Gr. V. on a recent hiking trip in S. Germany - never got tired of it!
I tasted this at a wine tasting at my local Total Wine and More store one Saturday. I loved it for it's fresh, effervescent charm. And for this price, I am astonished at the quality and charm of this wine. Definitly will become one of my house whites.
Not as sweet as regular guertzimer - good for sipping.

Repeat Summer buy for sure.

The steep, terraced, riverside vineyards of the Wachau, immediately west of Krems, as well as geologically diverse sites on the edges of the city and to the north in the Kamptal, yield...

Finding Gruner Veltliner, a wine known for its spicy minerality and firm acidity, used to be a real challenge in the United States. But even though Austrians still keep the bulk of the wine that they produce for themselves, Gruner Veltliner, the most distinctive and widely grown grape in Austria, is rapidly gaining popularity elsewhere thanks to its food-friendliness and...
