Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit, passionfruit-guava relish, crushed apple and melon, and dill and grass with a silky, vibrant, fruity medium body and a graceful, interesting, medium-length finish with notes of clementine custard and melon with no oak flavor. A tasty Teutonic white wine sipper that will be great with salads and will appeal to Sauvignon Blanc fans.

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.
