Wine Review: This pale straw colored Gruner Veltliner opens with a wet stone, pineapple and ginger bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, zesty and round. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced Anjou pear with notes of white pepper and stone fruit. I also detected a hint of white tea as well. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would pair this Gruner with swordfish skewers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A very attractive fruit bouquet yields apple, peach and citrus aromas along with beautiful minerality, a typical Veltliner spiciness and a touch of white pepper along with. The soft and juicy palate is supported by fine acidity. So harmonious and perfect to drink. A very palate-friendly wine.
