With considerably more flavor and body than many American and Italian versions of this light, fruity wine, there’s quite a pedigree in the bottle. Alois and Gerhard are grandfather and grandson, respectively, but Alois Jr., who died two years ago, was a great winemaker. Notes of vanilla complement the crispness and there are familiar citrus notes as well. Nice for a pre-dinner glass on the back porch.
