Leth Lagenreserve Gruner Veltliner 2003 Wine Review (Number 5 in Flight- NW)

Tasting notes:

Nose of minerals
Crisp and acidic on the palate
Very dry, clean finish with hints of lime

For a very dry style of white wine, Gruner Veltliner can't be beat. It's the grape that put Austria back on the wine map.

This one is nice and elegant. It has a real mineral character and would accompany a broad range of foods. I guessed it correctly, after just going with my gut reaction. Although there are plenty Gruners available for $10 or so, I'd still recommend this one at its $16 price point.

Number 5 in flight: very dry and elegant- I'd buy it again. Raise a glass!
