Region: Wagram, Lower Austria, Austria Grape(s): Grüner Veltliner Winemaker: Paul Direder Drinks Best: Now
Although he looks barely old enough to drink, Paul Direder carries on the agricultural traditions of his family farm that dates back to 1849. Now, only in his late twenties, this winemaking prodigy studied his craft under the tutelage of another shop favorite winemaker Anton Bauer, whose own winery is just down the road from Paul. Crisp, citrusy and refreshing, Paul’s namesake Grüner finishes with a zippymineral-laced finish. Already an outstanding value, this exceedingly glug-able Grüner is packaged in a liter-sized bottle giving you even more bang for your buck.
Pairings: Goan style (a bit tangy & a bit spicy) shrimp curry over basmati rice
Already packaged up, ready to go, and stacked at the front of the store, our monthly Sir Walt’s Six Pack is a great opportunity to try something new at an even better deal at 20% off the regular price.
