Gries 2001 Alto Adige Müller-Thurgau ($9.99)
Pale greenish-gold. Faint citrus struggles to emerge in a clean but slight but aroma. Crisp and fresh in flavor, neutral white fruit. Good with food, no real flaws, but unassuming at best. US Importer: Summa Vitis LLC, Matthew Fioretta Selections, Sonoma, Calif. (Sep 11, 2003)

FOOD MATCH: Its crisp freshness makes it a quenching quaff with just about any food. We served it with a rich vegetarian soup of celeriac and leeks.



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.
