Bruno Michel "Blanche" Brut Champagne $34.99One of our best non-vintage Champagnes, this organically grown blend of half each Chardonnay and Meunier comes entirely from Bruno Michel's estate. It has been aged for six years on the lees and shows wonderful natural toasty quality as well as incredible vibrance! This was the big hit of our most recent staff Champagne tasting and we think you will love it too.

Wine of the Week: 2010 Weingut Allram Grüner Veltliner (1L) $10.99

Pick up a bottle of the 2010 Weingut Allram Grüner Veltliner (only $10.99 for a liter!) for your next garden party. In stock now at K&L Q: What has the snap of Sauvignon Blanc, the fleshiness of Chardonnay, and is guaranteed to please lovers of both while perfectly complementing the season's fresh green beans, peas, and peppers?

A: 2010 Weingut Allram Grüner Veltliner (1L) ($10.99)

Unoaked and sealed with a crown-cap, the 2010 Allram Gruner Veltliner (a K&L Direct Import) comes in a liter-sized bottle and is about as lively, fun, and fresh as the popular Austrian white wine can get.  The nose is textbook Gruner: filled with spice and white pepper, snap pea and grapefruit. It is sleek, focused and juicy owing to the wonderful bright acid structure of the vintage. 4th generation winemaker Michaela Haas, along with her husband Erich, took control of the family's 15 hectare estate in 1992 and today produce wines wines from some of the top sites in the Kamptal.

"The Allram Gruner is exactly the kind of wine I look forward to drinking over the summer. Bright and refreshing, this wine has a hint of spice, a crisp mouth feel and a brilliant clean finish. Pair with light summer dishes, or Asian inspired cuisine, or just a Tuesday night." -Kyle Kurani, K&L Staff Member (7/22/2011)
