Höpler 2006 Burgenland Grüner Veltliner ($13.99)
Transparent straw color. Pure citric aroma, tart white grapefruit with a dash of white pepper. Fresh and fruity, a gulp of grapefruit juice, so ripe it seems almost sweet at first, but finishes crisp, clean and dry. Decent GV, good value. US Importer: USA Wine Imports Inc., NYC. (Feb 22, 2008)
FOOD MATCH: Excellent match with mixed cubs of fresh fish simply sauteed with garlic and finished with a little butter and lemon juice.

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.
