WINE REVIEW: Gruner Veltliner 2010 – Niederosterreich, Austria

My brother and his wife sent me this bottle of wine as a thank you gift so when I made my Pumpkin Ravioli I decided that was the perfect meal to pair it with.

This nice, dry white wine was really nice and matched great with the meal I made. It smelled of citrus overtones and had a crisp, clean, citrusy taste. I detected a hint of peaches as well. It is a light bodied wine that wasn’t at all overbearing and complimented my meal perfectly.

I would give this wine a rating of 86.
