Light color. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit, catbox, and taffy with an crisp, petillant, fruity medium body and a captivating, medium-long finish with suggestions of paloma and horchata with fruit tannins and no oak flavor. A happy medium for those torn between sauvignon blanc and grüner.

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.
