Steininger, Grüner Veltliner Sekt, Kamptal, Austria 2018 100% Gruner Veltliner PEAR, TANGY APPLE, SMOKY MINERALITY, SWEET PEA Though small, this futuristic (yet pastoral) estate has become an icon in the northerly region of Kamptal. Karl, Brigitta, and their daughters have carved out a bold niche for themselves in the world of Sekt (sparkling wine). This regal bottle is short on neither power nor elegance. Accompanying the fine, graceful bubbles, are aromas of pear, apple, and lime-like citrus. Minerals and zesty acidity linger on the finish. Fantastich! Serving Suggestions: Poached salmon salad w/ dill, beets, & arugula. Quiche w/ spinach, peas, asparagus, & feta. Baked stuffed Brie w/ cranberries & walnuts. Bacon-wrapped Brussels sprouts.
