Have you ever tried Grüner Veltliner? If not, you are missing out. This Austrian wine is so food-friendly, crisp, and generally a great value. I have been tasting several Grüners over the past few weeks and the most recent bottle I enjoyed is R&A Pfaffl Haidviertel Grüner Veltliner.
About the Wine- From the Winery
R&A Pfaffl Haidviertel Grüner Veltliner is 100% Grüner Veltliner from the Weinviertel region of Austria (Austria’s largest wine growing region). It has 12% alcohol and retails for around $19. For more information visit the importer at www.PalmBay.com
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
This Grüner Veltliner pours a pale, golden-yellow in the glass. Honeydew, lemon, and floral aromas pleasantly invite you to taste the wine. Your mouth is met with crisp acidity and tastes of citrus and melon. The tangy finish lingers and refreshes your palate. A perfect wine for spring and summer dishes.
My Wine Rating- B+
Food Pairing Suggestions- Pairs perfectly with grilled tilapia, seafood salad, or sushi.
