Drink of the Week: Etz Grüner Veltliner 2013

etz grunerWith sweltering temperatures across the country, it’s time to uncork today’s Drink of the Week, the Grüner Veltliner from Austria’s Etz winery. Run by the family’s forth generation, this easy-drinking summertime wine from the century-old estate ferments entirely in stainless steel and rests on its lees before bottling. It’s brisk and peppery, with fresh, green-apple flavors resting on a layer of Grüner’s trademark minerality.
