2004 Anton Bauer "Gmork" Gruner Veltliner, Donauland, Austria ($11)

WINE FIND

April 19, 2006|By MICHAEL DRESSER

Gruner veltliner is a little-known (outside Austria) but very fine white-wine variety, and this example is an excellent version at a reasonable price. It's a dry but fruity wine with penetrating flavors of lime, apple, sweet pea, fresh asparagus and minerals. Its aroma is very fresh and reminiscent of wet stone. Its finish is long and satisfying. Serve with white-fleshed fish, Southeast Asian cuisine.
