“A What?!” You ask. A Gruner Vetliner, I reply. You know, that awesome white grape from Austria. I really enjoy Gruner’s in the summer.
Try the Austrian Pepper – on the nose, I smelled hints of herbs and spice. At first taste, it’s sharp and crisp - like a razor on the tongue. On second taste, it’s spicy – a white pepper goodness that I just loved.
This wine has a lot to offer in that you can consume it as a cocktail, or with food. It’s a very food-friendly wine. I consumed this while enjoying polenta and grilled shrimp with an arugula summer salad.
For those of you that indulge in the ordinary – chardonnay, pinot grigio, sauvignon blanc – it’s time to venture out. I recommend you start by saying yes to my initial question. Your palate will enjoy the new journey.
