Grooner Vetliner 2010
Very interesting..definitely vegetable in nature. Tart green apple, icy citrus, cabbage, touch of mineral, touch of tropical fruit, white pepper, moderate alcohol, I don't exactly like it, but I know this is food friendly and with the right match I don't doubt this could be great.
External Reviews for Grooner Vetliner
I know what you're looking for. You're tired, frustrated... even bitter? Your feet hurt, the cart wheels are squeaky, the phone won't stop ringing and you're quickly realizing that "Electric Slide" ringtone you downloaded wasn't such a good idea after all. You've looked everywhere, tirelessly searching for a perfect white to pair with chicken and/or shrimp, right? Stop searching, you are done. Austrian Grüner Veltiner is a light-bodied, fruity white in the spirit of Riesling and Gewürztraminer. Grooner displays all the best qualities of this grape. The nose is floral and crisp and the pale golden color stays true to a body that is light and bouncy, with a touch of herbs and grass. I paired Grooner with grilled shrimp and a garden salad with mustard and olive oil dressing - a match made in wine-pairing heaven.
There's lots of fresh apple and green peach flavors in this crisp white, which shows hints of glazed apricot on the finish. Drink now.
A deliciously light, fresh, crisp and grassy Gruner, offering a lively level of acidity and bright green plum flavors. There is just a touch of pepper to make this a food-friendly wine. Screwcap- with a great label.
