Kremstal, Austria / $15-$17 Retail

From vineyards located near the banks of the Danube, a 550-year-old winery produces this dry, white, classic version of Gruner-Veltliner, Austria's indigenous grape. Fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel, this medium-bodied bottling has some complexity and it offers aromas of green apple, citrus and floral notes. On the palate, taste stone fruits, grapefruit, white pepper and a pleasing minerality with a crisp, acid-balanced finish. Serve slightly chilled and drink it with seafood, salads, schnitzel, pork chops and Asian cuisines. Buy it at: Hopper's Cartes des Vin and Dorignac's in Metairie. Drink it at: Iris and NOLA. — Brenda Maitland
