Quintessential Austrian whites are all about minerality and terroir. Grüner Veltliner, the country's star grape, is a great example of this: It's fairly neutral in taste, allowing the soil and microclimate in which it's grown to shine through in the final wine. Plus, their price-to-quality ratio makes them some of the best deals of the wine world. Get the scores and tasting notes!
