GOLD "Best Austrian Pinot Blanc"
93 • Höpler 2011 Pinot Blanc, Burgenland $15.99. Best Buy.
Pale golden silver color. Aromas of ripe yellow apples and pineapple cake with a silky, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a tangy, kiwi, guava lime and praline accented finish. Very tasty and appetizing; pair with spicy grilled shrimp dishes. (tasted on Sep-14-2012)
89 • Höpler 2011 Grüner Veltliner, Burgenland $13.99. Best Buy.
Bright tropical fruit aromas with a crisp, dryish medium body and a melon, lemon, and grassy earth nuanced finish. A great choice for shrimp or chicken with Latin fruit relish. (tasted on Sep-16-2012)
