Pale yellow straw color. Leesy aromas of walnut liqueur and doughy bread with a silky, bright, fruity light-to-medium body and an amusing, medium-length lemon zest, Marcona almond, underripe apricot, and vanilla and nutmeg finish with silky tannins. A nutty Grüner for poultry.

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.
