WINE FIND

October 05, 2005|By MICHAEL DRESSER

Gruner Veltliner, a little-known variety outside Austria, is one of the world's top-ranked grapes for white wine. This sleeper from north of Vienna is a big bottle of fine wine for a most affordable price. Dry but not severe, it offers hints of sweet pea, minerals and pear - with admirable intensity and no signs of decline at 3 years of age. SERVE WITH // white-fleshed fish, seafood, spicy Asian fare
