Tasting Notes

100% Grüner Veltliner, grown in loess soils. Just over half of the grapes for this wine come from Silke's family's vineyards; the rest are sourced from neighboring growers in Krems and Dross. This is a straightforward, spicy Grüner; light in body and fruit-driven.

Your mind begins to sift through the bottles you have on hand - that bottle of Champagne - no, a stored away Burgundy - no no, Oh! what about that Grüner Veltliner I bought after reading that Staff Pick that stated an occasion just like this. A shoulder to lean on. That's where this wine shines.
