Austrian Pepper 2010 - 88 points, WineReviewOnline.com/ One of the leaders in Weinviertel, a subregion of the Niederösterreich, Pfaffl is a family owned estate just outside of Vienna that deserves their fine reputation. This, what they refer to as their “entry level” wine is a stunning example of a bargain-priced Grüner Veltliner, Austria’s signature white grape. It’s a light (11.5% stated alcohol) vibrant wine with good viscosity and spice. A cutting edge makes it a fine choice for any fare from spicy dishes to simply grilled fish. It delivers far more than you’d expect from a $15 wine.
