75cl * 13% ABV * Austria
The 'antifreeze' scandal that rocked the wine industry in the 1980s notably devastated the Austrian market. However, it ushered in a range of quality control measures that have remained unparalleled there ever since. Such is its food friendliness, no self-respecting sommelier would leave Grüner off their list. Its pleasing pepperiness is softened by elegant notes of pear and apple. Best paired with pork schnitzel. Drink to 2025.
