Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of nectarine pulp, leafy yellow apple tree, lemon kefir, and kale with a supple, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, buoyant finish manifesting notes of Meyer lemon and green apples, nopales, minerals, and pepper. A ripe Gruner Veltliner that would pair well with white lake fish.

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.
