Trying Gruner Veltliner

July 18, 2011

I was sitting in the yard last Saturday evening and decided to open a bottle of my  Limited Edition Austrian Gruner Veltliner. I bottled this wine recently but couldn’t wait 6 months for it to really hit its stride- so I used my Vinturi to ‘open it up’.

My impatience was rewarded! The Limited Gruner Veltliner is an amazing, light white wine with some really different notes in it- from fresh tobacco to crisp apple flavours and mild spice on the finish there is a wide variety of flavours in this wine. Gruner Veltliner pairs well with a variety of chicken and pork dishes.

The Limited Edition Gruner is pretty much gone (check with your favourite Wine Sense location to see of there are any kits available) but we now have it in the Cheeky Monkey line. Don’t let the name of it fool you- the monkey does not fool around when it comes to quality wine. So for the truly”groovy” taste of this “groovy” wine stop in and get yourself an Austrian Gruner Veltliner.
