I believe this is the first time I have tried Grüner Veltliner.  It reminds me of unoaked Chardonnay and I like it.  Pale yellow in the glass, I was getting pears and apple on the nose.  The palate presented the same with some great mid palate acidity and a spice component on the back end.  The crispness of the wine is terrific and I really enjoyed it with a salad and some smoked salmon.  I stayed with it for the main course of pan seared Chicken breast, loving the flavor profile.  I don’t know how much this wine costs or where to get it as it was served on a flight.  I highly recommend it if you like dry whites and reckon it would pair greatly with many lighter dishes.  I love expanding my palate and think this was a great way to get to know a new varietal from Austria.  91 points in my book.  Salut….
