2020 Christina Gruner Veltliner - Niederösterreich, Austria (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (44)|
Christina has very deep roots in her family’s farm just east of Vienna, where she began doing chores as a 5 year old alongside her parents and grandparents. After leaving to study oenology and wine management, she came back home and converted the farm to 100% organic and the playful label with an array of bugs and plants celebrates the biodiversity found in their vineyards. Her Gruner, Austria’s preeminent white wine varietal, is hand-harvested, pressed as whole bunches and fermented spontaneously in stainless steel to maintain it’s purity and freshness. Along, slow ferment in the cold winter temperatures, allows the minerality, acidity and the typical peppery Grüner characteristics to blossom. Pairs wonderfully with smoked salmon, salads and it’s among the few wines that works well with asparagus and artichoke!
