Tasting Notes

A delicious, unoaked Grüner Veltliner that's too good to pass up. The Meinklang winery and mixed farm is set in the National Park Neusiedlersee in Burgenland. To say that this is a special place hardly describes the reality of the land.

Staff Pick Notes

Ahhh, Grüner Veltliner. You are always there when I need you. You manage to pair with ingredients difficult (asparagus and artichoke) and easy (salad and fish). In the summer, you quench my thirst with your minerality and acidity. In the winter, you warm my heart with your white pepper and apple blossom. You are also, generally, ridiculously affordable. You may just be my perfect match. Meinklang’s Grüner is a prime example of all of these things. It somehow manages to be simultaneously apple-y, pepper-y and also slightly vegetal--an unexpectedly wonderful combination. The zippy acidity positively cries out for light fare. Additionally, it would be quite difficult to find another wine at this price point with this amount of complexity. It’s hard to imagine an occasion where this wouldn’t be a great selection.

The wines are consistent and eminently drinkable at the low end, and, on the premium side of things, full-bodied,...

Deservedly famous for its white wines (Grüner Veltliners especially), Austria makes a number of delicious red wines as well.The most widely grown red grape in Austria is...
