When it rains it pours: Another Great Wine at an Incredible Price!
H.u.M. Hofer Gruner Veltliner Liter Bottle - by Bio-Weingut H.u.M. Hofer. Another value wine priced at $11.99 a bottle, but a LITER bottle, which is fantastic! This wine is no light-weight at 13% alcohol, but it tastes light and refreshing and crisp and ripe at the same time. This is classic Gruner Veltliner at its best. This is what we are drinking tonight after a day at the office (the store, on Sunday), and it is perfect. We're having broiled red snapper with brussels sprouts, but this wine is so versatile it would go with just about anything. Oh yes, it is wonderful with these thin slices of Piave cheese that I am munching on before dinner!
Value wines - they can be so lovely!
