2018 Count Karolyi Grüner Veltliner
Pannon, Hungary | $14.99 | Sale $10.99
Grüner what, from where?? Let us explain. Grüner Veltliner is a white grape variety grown mostly in Austria. The name translates to “Green Wine of Veltlin”. In the 1600s, Veltlin was an area in the lower Alps that is now Valtellina, Italy. It has a flavor profile of lime, lemon, grapefruit and nectarine. It can also have some herbaceous notes, spice and minerality. It has a very crisp acidity which is clean and refreshing. We stumbled upon this excellent example of Grüner Veltliner, but it wasn’t from Austria. It comes from South Central Hungary in a wine region called Pannon. Named after a Hungarian aristocrat, Lazlo Karolyi, this wine has a fragrant floral nose with ripe and crisp flavors of citrus that really explode on the palate. It is tangy with bracing minerality and hints of spice. This wine is great by itself, but pairs well with Asian and Indian cuisines, fried foods, and a variety of cheeses. We agree with the Count on this wine. An absolute steal at this price!
2018 Negrar Appassimento Passito Rosso
Veneto, Italy | $14.99 | Sale $10.99
Cantina Valpolicella Negrar has been creating superb wines for 85 years. This blend of Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella is made by drying grapes for a short period of time (appassimento) resulting in a smooth and rich wine. Full-bodied with aromas and flavors of plum, raisins, herbs, and cherry lingering on the finish. The label tells the story of Homer's Odyssey - fitting, as this is an epic wine for pizza, red meat dishes or just to curl up with in front of the fireplace!
