Gruner veltliner may not be as well known as chardonnay, but in my view it's every bit its equal for making dry white wine. This fine example is crisp and clean, with a spine of steel. There's an apple-pear fruitiness backed by a subtle herbaceousness and a zingy shock of white pepper. This is a very refreshing, bone-dry white that is perfect for springtime consumption.
