Salomon Undhof 2004 "Hochterrassen" Kremstal Grüner Veltliner ($12.00)
Transparent straw color. Apple aromas and crisply acidic, snappy citrus flavors are enhanced by GV's characteristic stony "rainwater" minerality, clean and long. Fresh and subtle, showing youthful fruit. US Importer: Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, N.Y.; a Terry Theise Estate Selection. (Feb 14, 2006)
FOOD MATCH: GV is gaining a reputation as an exceptional match with a wide variety of Asian fare. It passed this test with flying colors in a pairing with Filipino chicken adobo, chicken thighs long-simmered in soy sauce and rice wine vinegar with plenty of aromatic star anise.
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 WineLoversPage.com 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.
