I just bought five cases of 2006 Hirsch Gruner Veltliner #1 and one case of S.C. Pannell 2006 Grenache Rosé from my friend Cliff at Michael Skurnik Wines.
The Hirsch is biodynamic and it has a screw cap, which I look for in a wine we’re going to pour by the glass. The poor bartender is so busy that the screw cap is a godsend. I tasted this wine at Skurnik’s East End tasting in April and remember its distinct minerality. The rosé is Cliff’s suggestion.
