Hopler Wines from Austria
2018 Hopler Gruner Veltliner...$16.99
Some candied-peach and tropical-fruit notes here with a fresh, melon and peach edge. The palate has a superbly fresh feel with a bright, juicy and assertively fresh finish. Drink now. Screw cap.
Rated 88/100 James Suckling
Iced lemon and ripe Mirabelle plum on the nose promise freshness and fruit. The very light, bright palate indeed boasts gentle lemon, which is boosted by gentle spritz. The finish is dry and clean

2017 Hopler Zweigelt...$23.99
Zweigelt is the most widely planted red variety in Austria. It was created by Dr. Zweigelt in 1922 by crossing Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent (two other typical Austrian varieties) grapes
Bright and fresh, fruit-focused style. This has a very fragrant and juicy feel with such supple and elegant cherries in a drink-now mode. Screw cap.
