I’m a big Grüner fan. This one is pale in color with a mild nose. With food the wine was quite light and non-descript. I served it with Mac and cheese and my gf had a cabbage role, and both us found the food overwhelmed the wine. Which is odd given that neither is all that big in flavors. Once we were finished the meal we sipped the wine and got some nice citrus and minerality. There’s a slight hint of effervescence on the tongue. It builds nicely in the mouth, albeit subtle. I would give it an 87-88, only because I look for more in a wine.
