Freie Weingärtner 2000 Terrasson Thal Wachau Grüner Veltliner Federspiel ($9.99)
Clear pale straw color, with light citrus aromas backed by that characteristic Grüner Veltliner "stoney" quality. Crisp but rather full white-fruit flavors are laced up with snappy acidity; citric tang and minerality persist in a long, clean finish. US Importer: Vin DiVino Ltd., Chicago. (Sep 15, 2002)

FOOD MATCH: Demonstrating GV's easy compatibility with a range of foods, it goes very well with an omelet stuffed with green peppers, onions and sharp Cheddar.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
