  • Weingut Markus Huber Grüner Veltliner Hugo 2007


    Very very crisp, full of green apples. Mineral with a slight hint of mercaptins (maybe), but that seemed to dissipate after a while. A spicy finish from the oak. Would pair well with seafood or chicken salad. Read More

    This barely pink, dry, tiny bubbled-Pinot Noir sparkling Rose offers hints of ripe strawberry. Midway through the palate is the sensation of yeasty bread dough with a touch of granite, and a loooooooong finish.I bought this because my preferred sparkling Rose, Graham Beck 2006, was not immediately available. This substitute bottle filled the c... Read More
