Grüner Veltliner (Groon-er VELT-lynn-er) has become the white wine of choice of sommeliers. Grüner is known for producing quite aromatic and fruity wine with lots of acidity. Huber’s ‘Hugo’ was launched with the 2003 vintage. A green line of refreshment with a white pepper laser focus of grapefruit, green melon and lime. No oak.

Grüner Veltliner food pairings: spiced seafood, chicken paprika.

Mary rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

You’ll find apple, pear, lemon, lime and a savory lingering minerality. Perfect for summer sipping. A great food pairing wine as it will pair with challenging ingredients (like grilled artichokes). It has a lot going on for a great price.
