Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of green papaya, underripe mango, butter-poached apples, toasty pie crusts, and pecan praline with a satiny, vibrant, dryish medium body and a graceful, interesting, medium-length finish that exhibits notes of wet slate and wild citrus with light oak flavor. A highly appealing Gruner Veltliner with the silkiest texture; memorable balance delights with notes of tropical fruit dancing with refreshing minerality.

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.
