@Bargainbob I am an unapologetic, borderline demented GV advocate. I wrote this about the 2015 Exhibition GV:
“I rarely give any wine - or any product for that matter - the highest possible rating, but the Society’s Exhibition Grüner Veltliner is such an outstanding example of its type (and consistently so, across the vintages), that it deserves special mention. Its purity, precision and vibrant intensity is so refreshing and enjoyable, it can’t fail to please. It is highly versatile - as an aperitif or with food (wonderful with seafood, or cheeses, even) - and possesses a delightfully racy, zingy acidity as well as impeccable structure and poise. I go back to this time and time again and absolutely everyone loves it. Fabulous value at £12.50 - incredible. One of the best bottles in the entire Exhibition range - that’s quite an achievement.”
The current vintage is a somewhat steeper £13.95 but I can vouch for its value. Bloody marvellous mate - Willi Bründlmayer is a genius.
The more affordable Society label GV is also very good (in fact hugely popular - a bestseller) but in my view not quite as outstanding as the Exhibition, and not as good value either.
If you don’t want to spend more than a tenner I really enthusiastically recommend this one:
And if you want killer quality, try this one for £22 (not cheap, but ooooooooh so good):
