This "DAC” was the better of two possible "DACs”—it rhymes with "flak”—and is a wonderful value for a sleek, clear and lentilly-peppery GrüVe; some phenolic nip, lilacy and apple-y, the graceful finish is the most delicate part of the wine, full of finesse.

Review
Bio-Weingut Hofer is located in the little wine villageof Auersthal, which lies beyond Vienna's northern suburbs in the Weinviertal. Hofer has 15 hectares of certified organic vineyards from which all of their wines are sourced. The 2008 Grüner Veltliner Trocken, bottled in a full one liter bottle with a beer bottle style crown cap, is a refreshingly versatile, food friendly un-oaked white that packs a mouthful of flavor in every sip. The flavors are reminiscent of citrus, minerals, and the tell-tale white pepper that Grüner is known for. Bone dry with plenty of cleansing acidity on the finish, it's a worthy companion to Southeast Asian and Pacific Rim cuisine, as well as with vegetable dishes, fish and white meat.

Summertime is Grüner time. Grüner Veltliner is light and refreshing, with delicate, thirst-quenching flavors that complement everything from culinary basics to gourmet creations. Weingut Hofer has been a favorite of mine for many years now. The vineyards are certified organic, and the wines are cleanly made without winemaking tricks or manipulation. I found the 2012 tank- fermented M. Hofer Grüner Veltliner to be absolutely charming... bone- dry, precise and vibrant with appetizing peppery-herbal aromas, perfectly balanced acidity, and a textbook stony, mineral finish that leaves the palate revived and refreshed. This is the perfect go-to white for all things summery, especially picnics and outdoor dining. And it comes in a one-liter, crown cap bottle for extra crowd-pleasing enjoyment.
