I've probably had no more than tn Gruner Veltliner's over the edge, normally staying away from the because of the petrol(oily) edge to them, but then again, I have to challenge myself in this endeavor, so I picked up a bottle.

The wine immediately engages you with a nice sour green apple taste and then immediately lets off to the typical petrol taste. This wine takes some time to get used to, but can be a great accompaniment to some poultry and seafood dishes.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
