Wine & Spirits' April 2015 issue hit the stands recently, giving Brunn's Riede Stein Gruner Veltliner a rating of 93 points. They call it "primordial in its rich swirl of peachy flavors, violent scents" with "everything brought together by the wine's umami richness." We couldn't agree more!
They suggest pairing it with tafelspitz (Austria's national dish of boiled beef in broth, served with horseradish). Other options that work well are: grilled veal cutlet, grilled asparagus or spicy Asian food. Read the full review below. To learn more about Brunn, check out their page.
Brunn 2013 Kamptal Riede Stein Gruner Veltliner - 93
"This gruner comes off a plot of loess over primary rock (stein in German). It feels primordial in its rich swirl of peachy flavors, violet scents and a vegetal, mustard-green note, everything brought together by the wine’s umami richness. It has the stuffing to pour with a beef-brothy tafelspitz, or to age for several years.
