Hugl-Wein-2008-Gruner-VeltlinerHugl Wein 2008 Grüner Veltliner, Niederösterreich, Austria, 12.5% alcohol, Est. Price: $12.98

This is a great value because it is a liter vs. the normal 750 ml. An extra 1/3 for your money. This is an intense and concentrated wine offering pleasant citrus and grapefruit aromas, exotic tropical fruits with a hint of freshly ground white pepper. Full-bodied dry wine with a firm mineral backbone, giving it the strength of character to work well with many cuisines.

Critics say…
87 pts., Wine Spectator, Best Value

Fox School of Wine students say…
