Pale shade of yellow, this Austrian native kicked off the Virtual Wine Tasting Company’s 6th event. We drank it at room temp as well as chilled. I did not think it performed well at the tasting and am now re-tasting the following night indoors. The nose exhibits tons of citrus, some lanolin and green apple. The palate has minerality and a nice acidic cut. Lemon/lime like a 7-Up alongside an austere green streak that make this a very sharp wine. It cuts in the right places and refreshes as it goes. I did not care for it initially, but I now think it fits the billing for a decent, inexpensive Gruner. The finish is very refreshing and would pair well with seafood, perhaps a spicy Arrabiata but it will shine poolside on a hot day. 88 points and 3 stars for this $15 white. Salut….
