Terrific appertif

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!
Holy cow!

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!
Very refined.

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.
Good

Not as sweet as regular guertzimer - good for sipping.
Pleasant Change of Pace

This delightfully delicious light wine was our first Austrian Gruner Veltliner. The Merchant Review has the technical taste aspects about right. This professionally crafted offering is a tad effervescent with mild spices and dry minerality on the palate. Superb with delicate fare and as a graciously civilized party sipper. Repeat Summer buy for sure.

About Austria

Austrian wine has rapidly gained in international stature in the past decade, mostly on the strength of Austria's dry white wines produced within a 20-mile radius of the small city of Krems on the Danube, less than 50 miles west of Vienna. 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...

Gruner Veltliner

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...
