Straw color. Aromas and flavors of soft pear, hints of pineapple, cream, and fresh herbs with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, interesting, long finish with no oak flavor. A bright, lengthy Gruner with great balance; enjoy this elegant wine as an aperitif or with delicate fish and seafood.

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.
