Recommended by Tom Greguska, Discount Liquor

"It's somewhat light in body with fresh apples and a slight pepper note which is common with many Grüners. Lois (rhymes with choice) contains 1% residual sugar, which is barely detectable to most drinkers but it does soften the acidity of the wine just a bit. Loimer has been one of the best producers in Austria for the past 15 years and Lois is their most affordable Grüner in the lineup."

 

Tasting Notes by Jessica Barger of Mason Street Grill

Grüner Veltliner—one of my favorite grape varietals! There's a whirlwind of scents—from musk and white truffles, to tangerine and lime peel. The mouth and nose match. Ground white pepper spiciness, tingly acidity from flavors of lemon and lime ... lots of lime ... ends flinty. Our first impression is funky—the yeasty nose can be offputting, but we think that it would work well with a more "gastro pub" style fish fry. It should be noted that the strong scent dies after breathing for a bit. We like that this is a weird wine ... it's definitely more geared toward savoring. This would work with walleye and trout, maybe even a white-fish sashimi or crudo type dish. Perfect with rye bread—go old school with this Grüner—a British fish and chips at Three Lions would be perfect! Don't forget the malt vinegar!

Recommended by Jon Robash, AVA Wines & Spirits

"What's most striking to me about this wine is its balance, which is really uncommon in a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc in the mid-teens price range. I'd attribute this to the organic farming practiced in the vineyard, it isn't capitalized (which is legal in New Zealand) and they only produce 5,000 cases, which is a drop in the bucket compared to the mass marketed "brands" coming out of the same area."

 

Tasting Notes by Jessica Barger of Mason Street Grill

Not all New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs are the same! Highly aromatic with tons of pink grapefruit, passion fruit and fresh-cut green bell pepper vegetal notes. There is a party on your palate—grapefruit, lemon and sour apple. This white is really sweet and yet really sour, making it very well balanced. It’s super yummy, almost like a dry cider, followed by a grapefruit and lemon explosion. This wine is crisp and refreshing—fruity, but not sweet—because of the high acid. Incredibly dynamic. Victor's baked tilapia would be a terrific choice for this one.

"Nothing signifies local support and tradition like the Friday Fish Fry. With definite roots in our strong German ancestry, what better varietal to pair with a fish fry than a German one: Riesling! And what better than a locally vinified wine, but Wollersheim Dry Riesling, American Dry White Wine?

If this information doesn’t have you running to your local grocer for a bottle, this might: it’s delicious!! And it’s just the thing to compliment that bit of sweetness in your cod batter, and the salt of your potato pancake. As the ad team at Outpost Foods, Wauwatosa, has posted: “Wollersheim: We’ve been local since before it was cool!” TGIFFF!
"

 

Tasting Notes by Jessica Barger of Mason Street Grill

This Wisconsin-native winery's Riesling is loaded with aromas of pears, quince and orange blossoms. It tastes crisp yet acidic, like a fresh apple juice, almost like cider! It actually tastes like you're biting into a fresh green apple. This wine is very bright and sweet, with the crispness and tart qualities of the skin. The sip ends with Meyer lemon lingering in your mouth. Really tasty! We want to pour this on a salad or dip some crispy fish in it. Literally, pour it on! It's more medium-dry, palatable for everyone—whether you're into Riesling or not!

"A great Friday fish fry is fun and relaxing when shared with friends or family. Perhaps the biggest decision of the evening is brandy or whiskey in that old fashioned and perch, walleye, or cod on the plate. But don’t forget to order a refreshing and crisp glass of wine! Cave de Pomérols Picpoul de Pinet offers limey citrus notes and bright acidity to accompany your fish. In France, Picpoul is a natural companion to seafood and oysters. It is moderate in alcohol, somewhat dry, light-bodied and so easy to enjoy!"

 

Tasting Notes by Jessica Barger of Mason Street Grill

French whites are some of my favorite in the world. This wine, made from Picpoul de Pinet—yes, that's the grape—is so unique and versatile. The first wafts of this wine recall my teen years drinking Sunny Delight, or opening a can of Lite Fruit Cocktail. However, there is a fun balance of salinity and limestone and a lingering hint of candied ginger. The mouthfeel is light and thin, but has more minerality, like wet stone. It tastes like fresh-cut limes with and nice grassy note near the end. The combination is almost like gnawing on the white part of a watermelon rind.

Overall, the nose is misleading to the palate ... it smells much sweeter than how it really tastes, which is kind of a fun balance. Funky fresh! This would be ideal for broiled fish, or a catch that has a lighter flavor that will be gentle with this wine and would be great with scallops. Buckley's fish fry would be perfect for sipping such a sophisticated wine.
