A pair of attractively packaged Gruner Veltliners last night - new wines from Lenz Moser. In the orange corner we have the 'Friendly' GV, named Sophie, and in the purple, the 'Charming' GV, named Laurenz V. [Not visible are the matching-coloured screwcaps.]

The wines are pretty good. Sophie is brighter, fresher and has that distinctive white pepper character common to GV. Laurenz, from the Kamptal, is broader and richer - a bit more serious. This is also more expensive (13 as opposed to 9). Food friendly, certainly.

It's good to see more Austrian wines on the UK market, and this quirky but tasty pair look set to do well. availability in the UK: www.bibendum-wine.co.uk
