Connor’s Pick: Wimmer Czerny Old Vine Grüner Veltliner 2013

While I try to keep the Sweetgreen staff guessing when I order as best I can, the salad I keep coming back to each month is the Kale Caesar. The price is right at under $10 including tax, the salad is always consistent no matter who’s making it and their caesar strikes that perfect balance between light and filling. This Grüner Veltliner is similarly versatile – its floral aromatics, notes of dry pear and racy acidity offer something for the wine drinker that dreams of Sancerre or for the those that crave a richer grape variety such as Chardonnay or Viognier during these colder months. I never find Grüner to be a particularly cerebral varietal, but the Wimmer Old Vine will always deliver and its refreshing minerality would compliment any of Sweetgreen’s salads well.
