From the Kamptal wine region in Austria, a 100% Gruner Veltliner fermented in stainless steel to retain its vibrant acidity. Dry and creamy on the palate with soft citrus, white melon, white-fleshed stone fruit, fine herb and almond nut flavours on the palate with a lingering clean mineral finish. Enjoy now in all of its freshness.

Grüner Veltliner food pairings: grilled seafood, lobster in butter sauce, ravioli in an Alfredo sauce.

Crisp, light and dry, this Gruner Veltliner offers up some blossom on the nose that gives way to hints of mint and fennel. The palate features gooseberry and pears. Well structured and racy this will liven up chicken dishes or your salad course. Tasted October 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
