anton_bauer_gr_ner_veltliner_rosenberg_201_2412812_1500_z1Another of McIntyre’s picks was this 2012 vintage from Anton Bauer which he said evoked flavours of “lemongrass and chalk”.

He said: “Anton Bauer produces a range of Grüners priced from about $10 to $28, all of them good. His single-vineyard bottlings, called Gmörk, Rosenberg and Spiegel, serve as an affordably priced tutorial in the subtle differences among vineyard sites. They progress in vine age as they move up the hillside, with Spiegel at the top. The Rosenberg offers textbook Grüner flavours of lemon grass and chalk, with floral talc sprinkled in.”

Price: $19
