I just spent some time in Asia on vacation.  The flights to and from offered an opportunity to try some interesting wines.  I made the most of it!  If you have never had a Gruner Veltliner, I highly recommend them.  I had this one with a seafood terrine and salad.  It was a great match.

Golden dark yellow in the glass.  Nose of pineapple and ripe papaya.  The initial taste is quite refreshing, a cutting acidity introduces some pineapple spritz, with hints of lemon zest and pomelo.  Nice mouthfeel! 89 points and for $15 a really solid wine that gets 4 stars from me.  Salut….
