Years ago, I’d accept “Gruner What?” as an acceptable question, no more! Gruner Veltliner is a wine you either love, or you haven’t tasted it, or OK, you hate all white wine, that I’ll accept. It pairs well with so many cuisines, but especially Asian. This particular Gruner is exceptional. If you have not tried Gruner Veltliner, time to get with it. If you have, this is one you will love.
