Quick Sip: BioKult 2012 Grüner Veltliner
Today’s Quick Sip is the BioKult 2012 Grüner Veltliner. Grüner, as some people call it, is indigenous to Austria and is the region’s most important and widely planted grape variety. It’s also a versatile white wine grape, capable of producing high-quality, acid-driven wines ranging from fresh and sleek in style, to richly textured and complex.
The Biokult brand is produced by the Michlits family, who I'm told are one of the most influential and creative organic wine-growing families in Austria. All of the fruit used in making the 2012 Biokult Grüner Veltliner was sourced from the family’s bio-dynamic vineyard in Niederosterreich -- Austria’s largest wine producing region.

Review: BioKult 2012 Grüner Veltliner (SRP $12.99): In the glass, this wine displays a straw-yellow color with light green hues. The nose offers a delicate core of bright citrus fruit aromas alongside green apple and lime-zest with muted herbal and peppery spice notes. The aromas carry forward to the (light-bodied) palate with a touch of effervesce on the fruity entry followed by refreshing acidity and a crisp, short-to-medium length finish. Overall, a wonderful food wine – particularly with seafood, shellfish, or poultry dishes – at an attractive, everyday price point. (Other info: ABV 11.5%, 100% certified organic, 100% stainless, screw cap enclosure.) 87 Points. Click here to find this wine.
