Vacation Review... White Wines

Since we were on a vacation, not a working trip, we didn't take notes on each and every wine we drank, but we did note some re-occurring themes. As expected, we drank a lot of Riesling in both Germany and Austria. That grape should be considered King in those countries. The one we tasted were more dry than sweet, though there was usually the same hints of fruit and stone that we have come to expect. In Germany, we found some wonderful Gewurztraminer, with hints of both spice and flowers. In Austria, we  drank a lot of Gruner Veltliner; a grape we find less seldom on wine menus in the US. We found a lot of these to be crisp as well, with floral notes.
