Alzinger, Grüner Veltliner Smaragd 'Ried Steinertal' 2018

Our advice for getting into wine is to start at the top: to drink the wines from the winemakers that really matter. Admittedly, that’s hard in a place like Burgundy, where top bottles can cost as much as a mortgage. In Austria, it’s relatively easy: Leo Alzinger produces the top grüner veltliners in the game. They’re our favorite kind of whites to drink as the weather warms– wine as invigorating and refreshing as the purest, cleanest spring water.

Here's what you should know about it:
  • You’ll like grüner if you like zesty whites like Sancerre.
  • This is Alzinger’s top wine. You can age it for 20 years or drink it today. Buy two.
  • ‘Smaragd’ means it’s a more textural style– think White Burgundy.
Things we actually said...

“There are a few foods that make sommeliers shudder in fear because they’re tricky to pair: asparagus and artichokes are chief amongst them. Ironically, these are our favorite foods to eat in the spring. Grüner has always been our get-out-of-jail-free card, the white you can pair with anything. Do it.”
