Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Grooner Gruner Veltliner 2008 Wine Review
Zesty, come-alive notes of tart Granny Smith apple, grapefruit and lime. Pure fruit refreshment, without any oak. Terrific aperitif or accompaniment to many dishes, from seafood to salads. 4.3/5

|Peter rated this wine as 4.7/5 with the following review:|
Grooner is a great effort by Austrian wine expert Monika Caha in effort to gain populare recognition in the US of Grüner Veltliner, a bright and flavorful grape of Austria. I have tasted many Gruners over the years, having been a fan of this wine for years. This one that sells for a very reasonable price of around $10 is one of the best.
It has very lively and open citrus and green apple flavors that are wonderful alone and with food.
It has a lovely texture and aroma that is indicative of its source the fine wine maker Meinhard Forstreiter who is noted for more expensive Austrian wines.
|The wine is made from the Grüner Veltliner grape, the number one white wine grape of Austria. If you like the light, crisp style of Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, this wine is for you.|
Crafted by famous Austrian winemaker Meinhard Furstreiter, Grooner is made to be refreshing and easy drinking. With apple and citrus on the palate, this zippy wine is the perfect pairing for a wide range of food from salads, to grilled vegetables, to spicy or fried dishes, to light meat and fish. The great label and screw cap, not to mention impressive affordability, add to the appeal of the wine.
Introduced to the US market in 2008, Grooner has gotten great reviews. The New York Times wine writer Howard Goldberg declared that Grooner had “ hit the bull’s eye”, a “zippy and peppery” wine with a “delicious aftertaste that goes on and on”. I can’t wait to introduce this wine to friends and bring it along to parties. We hope you’ll love it as much as we do!
