I enjoy Grüners. They are unique dry crisp food friendly wines. This one is pale in color with a mild nose reminding me of Riesling. On the mid pallet the wine displays some nice Riesling like notes, honeysuckle and even a little pear along with some nice dryness and minerality. The wine is medium in length on the finish with the minerality and some fresh acidity lingering. This is a very food friendly wine. If you’ve not tried a Grüner before this is a good one to try. I would give it an 88-89 Very nice. A good deal for $16.95 as Grüners always are!
