Huber Hugo Gruner Veltliner, 2006

I discovered this Gruner Veltliner on the wine list at Chinn Chinn Asian Fusion restaurant and found that it was a good match for the spicy curry beef dish. So it was a safe choice from the cellar when we ordered takeout from Chinn Chinn.

Even though this Gruner is now a couple of years old, it is a bright medium gold with fresh lively smells of freshly sliced lime, flowers and minerals. Flavors are even snappier--spicy citrus fruit dances on the tongue from front to back. I'm becoming a fan of Austrian Gruner Veltliner, and this is an excellent example.
