Esterházy Galántha Grüner Veltliner 2017

I love Grüners, they are nice crisp, dry and food friendly. We don’t get a lot here in Ontario … This one is pale in color with a mild citrus nose. On the mid palate right out of the fridge the wine displays some noticeable citrus notes. as the wine warmed up the lemon notes became more subtle leaving some nice green apple notes. On the medium length finish the wine has some lovely crisp dry minerality. This is a lovely varietal Grüner, but, be sure and not serve it too cold or you will miss out on lovely complexity of this wine. It has some very nice mouth grip. We served it with pan fried perch and the wine went well, not overwhelming the subtle flavors of the perch. The LCBO say light and crisp, well that would be true if served too cold …
