Small Lot Grüner Veltliner 2021
Gold Medal & 92 points at the National Wine Awards of Canada 2022
This small lot Grüner Veltliner was made exclusively with grapes from a select block in our Red Rock Vineyard. After fermentation, it aged on the lees for 5 months, which created a full-bodied, complex wine with a creamy mouthfeel.
