The Year's Most Exciting Wines

How does one even begin to narrow down all the choices of high-rate wines into one list of the Year's Most Exciting Wines? Wine Spectator has managed to do tackle that very feat, releasing a Top 100 List At A Glance. There's even more in-depth coverage that is available on the site for a brief period of time free of charge, with profiles, tasting notes, and videos of many of the stand-out products.

What managed to catch my eye was that a wine I just happened to introduce on the Drinks blog in my "tales of three cities" roundup, the Stadt Krems Gruner Veltliner, made the final cut! The Austrian wine of the Kremstal region sits proudly at No. 93 on the list - another Austrian protege, the Knoll Gruner Veltliner, made it to No. 72.

Attached here is a PDF profiling the wines at a glance; so now begins the task of stocking up on all these fantastic bottles!
