Szigeti Gruner Veltliner Brut Sponsored Wine Review by Billy
Nose: Floral and citrus with a vanilla/nutmeg touch
Palate: well spaced bubbles and a dryness that accentuates the floral nature of this delightfully sparkling Gruner Veltliner from Austria
Finish: short and tangy with more grapefruit at the back and an acid core.
Overall: I have never had a Gruner Veltliner sparkling wine before but this is quite simply a delight. This was sent to The Wine Cask Blog by Winebow for review. The wine retails for $17-20 and is a pleasant change from the American bubbly, Spanish Cava and Italian Prosecco. The Gruner Veltliner grape is expressed nicely. For any fan of bubbly (and really, who isn't?) this is a must-try bottle. A Special thanks to Constance for arranging this sample.
