Emerald straw color. Clean aromas of key lime, underripe apricot, talc, and gardenia with a velvety, vibrant, dry medium body and a warming, delightful, medium-length cherry blossom, blanched almond, crisp Napa cabbage, and snap pea finish with fruit tannins. A bracingly dry gruner with pleasant floral notes.

Gruner Veltliner

Serve in a White Wine Glass
Gruner Veltliner is a dry white wine made in Austria and the Alto Adige region of Italy from the eponymous grape. Grüner Veltliner is an aromatic wine, with perfumes of peach, nectarine and honey; acidity is very good and there is often a distinct minerality in the finish. The best versions are usually unoaked and are sleek, intriguing white wines that age well (sometimes for as long as a decade) and have become a favorite with sommeliers, as they pair well with a wide array of foods, from crab and mussels to sushi, Thai and fusion cuisine and even roast pork or veal.
