Pale straw green color. Aroma of underripe mango with a satiny, lively, dry-yet-fruity light body and an interesting, carefree pineapple, crisp almond brittle, and bitter lemon soda finish with fine, fruit tannins. A Grüner Veltliner with great acidity and tropical fruit flavors.

Gruner 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.
