A zesty, vibrant Austrian white wine made from Gruner Veltliner grapes, the country's iconic white wine varietal. Aromas and flavours of lime and white grapefruit. Clean and crisp with no oak. Lots of juicy, mouth-watering acidity to pair with fresh seafood and shellfish.

Gruner Veltliner food pairings: lentil soup, smoked salmon, boiled ham, salads, vegetarian dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Gruner Veltliner - this green grape is growing on me for sure! The crispy, pungent flavor is delightful - the aromas in the glass are green apple, pear and citrus - there is an abundance of lovely lemon bursting on the palate - great value!
Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Priya: Weird this smells like sauvignon blanc because it has that familiar green grass/cat pee note.

Alex: Tell me there isn't sauv blanc in here as well as gruner! Nevertheless the aromatics are attractive showing gooseberry, lychee, white pepper and asparagus. Not as lively on the palate as many pruners but the citrus and tropical fruit element is tasty. 85pts

Priya: Has a bit of a salty and bitter aftertaste which is not my favourite but many people love that. It's a simple wine and sometimes that's all you want. 86pts
Mymi Thesingingsommelier - Sommelier, FWS rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

First mentioned in an official viticulture document in the 1040’s, Lenz Moser has become the ambassador of Austrian wines establishing itself over the years as the country’s most important exporter of wines. The Prestige wines are made with fruit from the winery’s best vineyard sites in both Burgenland and the Niederösterreich wine regions.
Vibrant on the nose with fresh cut grass, ripe peaches and a little dried mint.
Zesty, dry but fruity on the palate.
Simple and delightful!

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
