Salomon Undhof Hochterrassen Gruner Veltliner 2004 Wine Review (NW)
Very light, pale white
Citrus aromas on the nose
Crisp, acidic on the palate
Abbreviated, white pepper finish
My wife and I foiled PB with this wine. We placed it in front of him in a blind tasting, knowing it would be very difficult to guess. He was close, though, thinking it was a dry Chenin Blanc. For Gruner Veltliner, the Austrian national grape, this one is extremely dry and very inexpensive at just $6. The problem is, it's too dry, crisp, and abbreviated. Interesting wine, but next time I'll spend a little more money on a Gruner Veltliner in the hopes of something a little more complex. Raise a glass!
