Fifteen years ago, grüner veltliner was considered the next new thing. After many subsequent next new things, grüner has become something of an afterthought. But it still can be a lovely, appealing wine, especially from a great producer like Nigl. This one, made with purchased grapes, has a spicy, lightly peppery aroma. On the palate it’s pure and straightforward, fresh and lively, and would go well with a fall salad and vegetable preparations.
