Austria is one of the few countries that drinks more of its own wine than it exports, meaning that until recently, all consumers saw were high-end examples poured by sommeliers. But ANTHONY ROSE says the trend away from cheap and cheerless' wines has helped Austria flaunt its Rieslings and Grner Veltliners in the UK. Whether a Pinot Grigio fan looking to upgrade or white Burgundy drinkers wanting something lighter, Rose likes 2006 Kurt Angerer GV Kies (7.99; Noel Young), 2006 Salomon-Undhof Hochterrassen GV (7.95, Lea and Sandeman) and 2006 Schloss Gobelsburger GV (6.49; Waitrose).
