Domaine Wachau Gruner Veltliner, 2010

Austrian Gruner Veltliner wines are a perfect match for Asian food, and this Gruve from Domaine Wachau was a fortunate find on the wine list at Chinn Chinn Asian fusion restaurant in Mattawan, Michigan. It's brisk enough to rise above the Asian spices and add its own aromas and flavors.

Green is the theme with this Gruner Veltliner, but it's not the green bell pepper that is so often found in Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot wines. It's the more subtle green of a meadow in spring or a freshly sliced Granny Smith apple. Lilting aromas and flavors that keep peeking through the aggressive Asian spices. Lovely.

  2. Fred: Since I am new to this, would you mind giving me some pointers to get the Adsense to work? Seems yours is up and running. I added you on FB; thanks a million. cheers.

  3. Emily, I don't remember all that much, but you can start from your blog, I believe, by pressing the button for "monetize." You can then decide where to place ads. They are not a great money maker unless you attract thousands of visitors a day. With a little over 100 visitors a day, I make $2 or $3 in a good month.
