Today's Wine Tasting Note

Loibner Schütt Dinstlgut Loiben 1997 Loibner Schütt (Austria) Grüner Veltliner ($8.99) [Best Buy!]
Very pale brass color. Delicious citric lemon-lime and green-pea aromas. Bright, fresh fruit, consistent with the nose, over a very tart and steely acidity that persists in a long, clean finish. Not overly complex, but a good example of the character of Grüner Veltliner from the Wachau region (on the north bank of the Danube not far from Vienna) at a price that makes it doubly attractive. (Jan. 4, 1999)

FOOD MATCH: Surprisingly effective in a cross-cultural match with a not-too-fiery vegetarian potato-cauliflower curry.

Previous day's wine note

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
