Another fun Gruner for just $12 a liter bottle. Lime zest, lemon and lime fruit. Great crisp texture with a great pepper and spice finish. Gruner will match well with a wide range of food..... try it with spicy Indian dishes.

Spicy, green apple goodness. Classic GruVe, on the nose and palate. Great value, similar to Berger.

Austria

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
