“Elegant and light bodied with cherry notes, the Heinrich Red 2013 is a blend of 40% blaufrankisch, 50% zweigelt and 10% St. Laurent. It can hold a slight chill, making it ideal for a picnic and lighter fare. Think fried chicken, charcuterie and cheeses.”
“The pristine hand-picked white grapes in Stadt Krems Gruner Veltliner 2015 are fermented in stainless steel to ensure vivid freshness and lilting notes of apple and citrus. The elegance in this wine makes it a perfect match for sushi or a dish of pan roasted striped bass in a red curry coconut sauce.”
I triple-checked the price because I couldn't believe this much depth of flavor could be found in a $12 wine. And indeed, right after I tasted it I followed with a $35 Cabernet from the Napa Valley and the cheaper wine was far superior. Root:1 is polished, complex, concentrated and balanced and the flavors are serious and savory.
