Golden yellow color. Mild aromas of apple and kiwi with a supple, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a graceful, brisk melon, pineapple, lime, and nougat finish with fruit tannins and no oak. An nice US take on the classic Austrian grape.

Grüner Veltliner
Wine Glass White.jpg
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.
