Today's Wine Tasting Note

© Copyright 1999 by Robin Garr. All rights reserved.

Berger Berger 1997 Kremstal (Austria) Grüner Veltliner ($7.99/1 liter) Best Buy!
Under $8 for a liter bottle? You might not expect much from a wine at this price, but this one's a standout. Clear, pale brass in color, it shows the characteristic green-pea and "mineral" scents of Austrian whites; its flavor is dry and fresh, full and citric, surprisingly reminiscent of mandarin oranges, crisp and clean in a long finish. U.S. importer: Milton S. Kronheim & Co. Inc., Washington, D.C.; a Terry Theise Estate Selection. (May 3, 1999)

FOOD MATCH: Perfectly matched with fresh asparagus wrapped with prosciutto with a mild aged goat cheese.

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.
