Sohm & Kracher Gruner Veltliner 'Lion' Niederosterreich 2016
Varietal Gruner from Niederosterreich, Lower Austria’s mecca for white wine production. Exotic aromas of crisp apple and pear dominate the nose, giving way to a palate full of citrusy stone fruit and white pepper. Perfect with salads, fresh veggies, and refreshing fish tacos.
The land of Schwartzenegger and strudel delivers ethereal, electric whites along the Danube, but Grüner and Riesling aren't the whole story; its savory, mineral, lightweight reds can be revelatory.
