Salomon Undhof’s Grüner is straw yellow color, very faint, with clear rim and a perfume of apple blossom, white peach, and cut grass. It’s peachy on the palate, too, which adds flavors of citrus pith, ginger, and salt. The wine is textural, weighty (don’t let its clarity fool you), and the acidity is modest, but it finishes in a refreshment of lemon nectar. Best with mild and milky cheeses, poached fish, and lighter fare seasoned with lemongrass.
