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.

Raise a Glass!

Thanks for the shout out :)

I actually popped a bottle of this open myself last night to pair with our Chinese food (after all, it was Chinese New Year.. no I'm not Chinese) and it was fabulous. No one had anything but nice things to say.
Glad you enjoyed it!
