Bründlmayer 1999 Ried Loiser Berg Kamptal Grüner Veltliner ($13.99)
Straw color, clear and very pale. Distinct mineral scents, a stony quality with wet wool and delicate floral overtones. Full and ripe in flavor, tart and dry; fresh white fruit surrounded by nuances that follow the nose. Crisp and citric lemony snap in a long finish. Complexity, balance and cleansing acidity add up to a wine with exceptional affinity for a wide range of foods. US Importer: Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, N.Y.; a Terry Theise Estate Selection. (Feb 17, 2003)

FOOD MATCH: A light but piquant lemon-garlic reduction brings up a pan-roasted chicken breast to meet the wine.



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.
