6 Types of Wine to Try
Move over, Chardonnay. These under-the-radar wines are every drop as good as your regular bottles.
Like Sauvignon Blanc, Grüner Veltliner, (typically from Austria), refreshes with similar tart citrus flavors and a light, herbaceous quality. It is incredibly food-friendly, thanks to high acidity and a peppery zip on the palate. Try it with fiery curry or as a revitalizing foil for fatty foods like fried chicken. We like the vivid, tangy lime and green apple notes in Lois Grüner Veltliner 2012, ($15, at liquor stores).
