I have sampled a few different Gruner Veltliners lately as part of my class project and one of my favorites is the Hungarian, Floriana 2015, Pannon.
It has a long finish at over 30 seconds, is light straw in color and has notes of pear, lychee and apricot. It is high in acid, has medium fruit notes, low residual sugars, a slight effervescents and low tannins. The alcohol content is 12.5%.
If you're on a budget and want to try a Gruner Veltliner, this is a steal at $6 from Trader Joes.
