2008 Weingut Berhard Ott Grüner Veltliner 'Fass 4'
Take a sip of this fresh, zippy Grüner Veltliner and you won't be able to stop. It's got the classic scent of white pepper and green apple, a bright acidity and a bracing citrusy finish. The 2008 vintage from Austrian winemaker Berhard Ott drinks beautifully with grilled lobster, but it's just as good a match with oysters or clams on the half shell, bay scallops and peel 'n' eat shrimp. Serve it as an aperitif, too, with smoked trout or soft, ripened cheeses.
