A bottle of Weingut Setzer 2009 Gruner Veltliner, an Austrian wine


Weingut Setzer 2009 Gruner Veltliner "Ausstich" DAC
Weinviertel, Austria

Although its name doesn't roll off the tongue like a sweet nothing, Gruner Veltliner is a romantic, feminine varietal. This Gruner offers delicate fruit and a lightness on the palate, but with an underlying hint of something feral. Try it as a foil to creamy pasta dishes or with delicate, white fish.

Rating: 13.5/20
