DRINK OF THE WEEK
11th June 2018
Lebegés Grüner Veltliner
Aldi Ł4.99
Drinker Rating 89


At the Aldi press tasting back in March I wrote some good notes about this wine, fresh as a daisy, soft white pepper and citrus notes etc. What I also wrote was 'ooh, Grüner Veltliner that's deeply unfashionable'.

I then went on to taste a huge number of Grüner Veltliners at all of the orther press tastings in the spring. So what do I know about fashion, they're all doing it right now and I'm the last to cotton on.

Of all the supermarket Grüners out there this is by far the msot affordable and is such great value probably because it comes from Hungary rather than its homeland Austria.

Lovely light white, perfect for a summer's day.


Cheers!
