Cracking the $20 barrier is a real challenge for me for a white wine, but based on the wonderful Smaragd Grüner Veltliner we enjoyed recently, I'm learning to consider breaking this rule for the excellent whites from Austria's Wachau region. This wine proved well worth the toll, and if the fruit isn't the most forward element, the mineral and aromatic qualities certainly made up for that.

FOOD MATCH: A simple but excellent omelet made with fresh free-range eggs and three-year-old Gouda.
