Ecker Eckhof Wagram Gruner Veltliner, NV

This wine is about unpretentious as you can get. It comes in a plain green bottle similar to those used for mineral water with a simple screw cap (not a "stelvin closure"). The price is $9.99 for a full liter--the equivalent of about $7 for a regular wine bottle. What's inside is what counts, and that is very good.

Light to medium gold. Fresh herbal/fruit scents with clean, clearly defined flavors. Mint, basil, snap beans in a citrus-toned base. Bring a bottle out on the deck. The brisk flavors will get you going and keep you happy throughout the meal.
