More about this wine from Niederosterreich, Austria
This might be the one grape that definitely drives every Somm into some sort of temporary daydream where somms are all getting together and talking about obscure wine stuff. Nerd ALERT! Here's the translation...

Grüner Veltliner is a native varietal to the hills of Austria — and this bottle is a prime example of it. Crisp and clean but with a biting acidity, these Green Eyes are not messing around. While at first, you may notice notes of pear-lemonade rising from the glass, beneath these are dried dill and supple-sweet apricots left out in the sun.

This wine basically just transports you straight into a dancing kinda mood: wearing those perfectly fit jeans and shaking it like no one is watching. Next thing you know you'll start break dancing all across the dance floor.
How to drink it

While...

Starting to start Saturday night. Too Many Colors by Twin Shadow is playing just a little too loud as you try on ten pairs of jeans, while sorta dancing on a mission to find the perfect fit for the night out

Eating...

Vietnamese and Thai. The flavors in these cuisines call for special care when pairing with wine. Whether that Southeastern Asian dish is inspired from Thanksgiving leftovers or not, Grüner Veltliner is your go-to.
