BRÜNDLMAYER Grüner Veltliner “Terrassen” 2015

(Kamptal, Austria) $23

This is what I plan to open on the first torrid night of summer. I’m going to imagine that the coolness of Austria has crept like fog into the hot heart of the Napa Valley. Brundlmayer (one of Austria’s top producers) is known for making wines of restraint and purity. In particular, this gruner veltliner (from terraced hills–terrassen) always reminds me of the light minerally freshness of a cold mountain stream. The hint of white pepper (a signature of gruner) is like a sensory surprise at the end. (12.5% abv)
