Weingut Brundlmayer Gruner Veltliner 2003 wine review by (PB)

Pale straw in color with almost no bouquet but a slight touch of cream is suggested.

In the mouth it is off dry with nice structure that gives a subtle--very subtle--flavors with a lively (spritzig) presence. There is sweet cream flavor and the wine is a good palate cleanser. Gruner Veltliner is "the grape" of Austria and seems to be making a bit of a resurgence but with the upswing with Pinot Grigio and Albarino, it has its work cut out. Raise a glass.
