FX Pichler Gruner Veltliner Ried Klostersatz Federspiel 2017
White wine. Wachau, Austria. Sustainable. 100% Grüner Veltliner. 2017 was a warm dry vintage, but despite this the wines produced have a scintillating acidity. Federspiel wines are intended for drinking in the first five or so years from the vintage to take advantage of the bright fresh character of the wines. Look for melon, citrus, and lychee flavors at the start and a herbaceous finish with white pepper and a hint of lentils. Pair this wine with fish and light poultry dishes; Gruner Veltliner also works particularly well with veggies like Brussels sprouts and artichokes.
