Consistently clean, fresh and vibrant: this Austrian white wine made from the country's iconic Gruner Veltliner grape offers tremendous value. Limes and white grapefruit head to the finish line to create an exciting sense of vibrancy and refreshment. No oak. Try it with clams or mussels.

Grüner Veltliner food pairings: seafood dishes, chicken, avocado green curry with cilantro and lime.

Reviews and Ratings

Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted May 28th 2017. Colour clear with a green tint. Aroma aromatic with citrus notes.
On the palate pear, citrus and a note of white pepper. Minerality is nice. Finishes with citrus and minerality. My first time tasting this grape Gruner (green) Veltliner. The grape variety can have a range of flavour depending on the style of the winemaker. Unfortunately for Canadians we do not find this very often in the LCBO because the Austrians consume a large amount domestically. Good news the exports are usually good quality examples. Keep your eyes open for more offerings.
The wine matches well with shell fish, Wienner Schnitzel or a simple prepared white fish.
Love Salomon Undhof's Groovey (2016) Grüner Veltliner. Wow value on this trendy Austrian wine from the Kremstal. Pair with anything seafood or sushi. Founded in 1792, Salomon Undhof is a wine estate steeped in wine tradition. All Grüner Veltliner grapes are harvested by hand only. Vineyard locations are perfect for Riesling and Gruner grapes and make for very elegant wines with finesse. - Community Wine Reviews
