Tasting Notes

The more savory aspects of Grüner Veltliner are present in the aroma of this wine, with yellow apple and spice notes.  On the palate, the minerality that is typical of these vineyards comes through, with herb and some wax bean notes. 

Food Pairing

Can pair well with strong vegetable flavors, such as asparagus and green pea, or with lighter meat dishes.
