Zesty, herb-tinged Grüner Veltliner makes a refreshing choice for a sultry August evening; this single-vineyard bottling is deliciously crisp.
What You Need To Know
Bucolic visions of Austrian wine country--rolling green hills, pointy-roofed houses and crisply manicured vines--take a hit when one finds out that "Galgenberg," the name of the vineyard in northeast Austria from which this wine comes, translates as "gallows hill." But thankfully the gallows on this site outside the farming town of Röschitz, not far from the Czech border, were torn down centuries ago. Located in Lower Austria, the country's premier wine region, Weingut Gschweicher (guh-SHVY-kher) is a small, family-run estate. Gerhard and Herta Gschweicher own a few acres planted to Grüner Veltliner, Austria's signature grape, on the Galgenberg hill and vinify it in a clean, fresh style that makes the most of this grape's citrusy charm.
