Wine. Grüner Veltliner. Dry aromatic white wine that is almost unbearably easy to drink. Furthermore, this one — from Biohof Pratsch — is available in a super-size, liter bottle for only $12.99 @ New Leaf.
The most widely-planted grape of Austria, GV famously goes with everything, including Brussels sprouts. We climbed down into the glass full of salted nectarines, straw and jasmine – at first sip. Then this creation of organic grapes morphed into pink grapefruit and a bouquet of quartrz. Ultra clean finish.
