Check out Erdenlied an Austrian brand of wines.
It has three wines; Grüner Veltliner, Erdenlied - 2010 Intense herbality, distinctly mineral and dusted with a fine coat of white pepper, this crisp Grüner is polite, bone dry and delights with animated elegance. A juicy palate such as this plays well with a host of interesting foods - anything light, lean and green or fishy. As well, delicate pan-Asian cuisines, especially elevated with lemongrass, cilantro and Thai basil.
Riesling, Erdenlied - 2010The Rieslings of Austria are brillantly crisp, mineraled and dry. This lithe, stony example has pretty apricots and meadow flowers on the nose and palates. The vibrancy of its stone fruit resonates in a zesty acidity that finishes deftly with a touch of mineral. Pair easily with white fish enlivened with herbs, shrimp and sautéed vegetables.
Zweigelt, Erdenlied - 2010 Approachable blackberries and gravelly minerals define this party-goers red. Suede tannins add texture but do not dominate the vibrant fruit and acidity. The liter-sized bottle is just right for larger gatherings.
