I really went back and forth about whether to tell you about this bottle. Grüner is a weird wine, an Austrian wine that hasn’t really hit prime time, and it can be a pretty wine-geek wine that’s sometimes hard to get – both literally (not much finds its way into the LCBO) and figuratively (its specialness can occasionally be hidden by intense acids and minerality that can seem quite neutral).
But after enjoying this bottle over 4 nights, I was smitten and just had to share. Because this little weirdo is friggin delicious. (Plus, it’s St. Patrick’s Day and we’re adults and Grüner means green, so obviously it’s what we should all be drinking tonight.)
