Grüner Veltliner deserves attention, not only because of its distinctive character but thanks to its easy food-friendliness. Philippines wine supplier Manila wine shop discusses wine by the grape variety Grüner Veltliner.

December 14, 2010

Lovers of opulent, fat and happy “fruit bombs” may wish to look elsewhere, but for those who fancy sharp-edged, minerally white wines, Austria’s signature Grüner Veltliner grape ranks right up there with Muscadet from the Loire and Mosel Riesling for its austere transparency, with extra credit for being just plain refreshing.

Don’t let the unfamiliar name throw you: Even if you don’t speak German, you can skip the umlaut on the first syllable and call it “Green-er Felt-leen-er” and everyone will know what you’re talking about.

Or call it “GV” for short, as the grape’s growing band of fanciers do. Indeed, a generation after an unfortunate adulteration scandal rocked the Austrian wine industry during the 1980s, GV is leading a resurgence in Austrian wine that has won a small but growing and very enthusiastic “cult” following.

Grüner Veltliner deserves that attention, not only because of its distinctive character but thanks to its easy food-friendliness. It makes a fine match with seafood and fish, stands up to poultry and pork, and, increasingly, is becoming a go-to wine for Southeast Asian fare, particularly Vietnamese and “fusion” Pacific Rim cuisine. And to put the icing on the cake, with the possible exception of a few of the most sought-after labels, GV remains delightfully affordable.

GV was such a popular topic in our online forums’ “Wine Focus” feature last spring at this time that we thought we’d herald the arrival of warmer weather by doing an encore again this month.
