2011 Grooner Grüner Veltliner

2011 Grooner Grüner Veltliner

Despite its silly name, Grooner is a supple, pleasant take on Austria's signature (and fashionable) grape. A winning alternative to chardonnay, this Grüner has cool, mellow flavors and ample structure. It delivers a lot of wine for the money. [$10; garyswine.com]
