Weingut Hiedler Weingut Hiedler 1997 Langenloiser Spiegel (Austria) Weissburgunder Trocken ($12.99)
Clear, pale straw color. Ripe aromas of cooking apples and musky melon. Crisp, full and fresh, simple fruit structured with tart, lemon-squirt acidity. Clean and lasting, fine table wine, demonstrates the high potential of Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder) in Austria. U.S. importer: Milton S. Kronheim & Co. Inc., Washington, D.C.; a Terry Theise Estate Selection. (Feb. 15, 1999)

FOOD MATCH: Excellent with a high-tone rendition of macaroni and cheese made with a variety of leftover cheese ends including a taste of Tillamook Cheddar, a piece of Spanish Manchego and a good-size hunk of earthy Gethsemane Trappist cheese from Kentucky.

Weingut Hiedler 1995 Langenloiser Weingärtencuvée (Austria) Grüner Veltliner ($10.99)
Clear, pale gold. Fresh green-pea aroma, a delicious characteristic of GV. Full, juicy and tart flavor, white table grapes and, believe it or not, kiwi fruit, structured with steely acidity. Delicious wine. U.S. importer: Milton S. Kronheim & Co. Inc., Washington, D.C.; a Terry Theise Estate Selection. (Feb. 18, 1999)

FOOD MATCH: A great match with salmon cakes.

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.
