2020 Fred Loimer Lois Gruner Veltliner Niederösterreich
Winemaker Notes: Grüner Veltliner is the signature grape of Austria and produces a dry white wine with savory aromas, spicy flavors, and good acidity. Young Grüner Veltliner is fresh-tasting with notes of green apple, lemon, radish, and arugula. Lighter styles of Grüner Veltliner are intended for immediate drinking, while more structured examples can age for many years.
Grüner Veltliner’s bright acidity and savory character make it an ideal partner to mildly spiced Vietnamese, Thai, and Chinese dishes. Fish and shellfish are accented by Grüner Veltliner’s citrus and mineral profile, while its acidity cuts the richness of pork or ham. It can also work well with foods that are difficult to pair such as bitter greens and asparagus.
Wine & Spirits - "Here’s an affordable wine with real personality. It’s savory and sweet at once, with wildflower scents and grapefruit flavor as well as smoked-meat note that gives it breadth and depth. The acidity keeps it lively, the wine ending on a clean, fresh note. Best Buy"
Wine Spectator - "A whiff of elderflower gives way to grapefruit, pear and almond flavors in this sleek, light-bodied white, which tightens up, turning more compact on the finish, yet remains fresh. Drink now. "
