Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine features an array of tropical fruit aromas, with hints of ripe stone fruit, yellow apple, honeysuckle, and fruit punch. This very food-friendly wine has a rich, creamy and nutty texture, followed by a zesty aftertaste.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes for our premier vintage of Grüner Veltliner were sourced from Bordertown. We are looking forward to the first vintage with our estate grown Grüner Veltliner grapes in 2021 or 2022. This riper style of wine was made with only free run juice from whole cluster pressing to give a rich and creamy texture on the palate. It was fermented with cold fermenting yeast to produce a complex, aromatic wine.
Food Pairing Notes
With its origins in Austria, Grüner Veltliner is traditionally served with Wiener Schnitzel. It is also a great palate cleanser to enjoy with spicy creamy dishes such as butter chicken.

Lovely. I’ve never tried this varietal before and it was absolutely delicious. Thx Fort Berens for this lovely addition to my wine club order.
