This white grape is widely grown in Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia. As a wine, it is food friendly and has beaten top Chardonnays in blind tastings.
Dry, clean, and crisp with citrus notes, yellow plum, light green apple, & a hint of white pepper.
Known locally as ‘Mr. Veltliner,’ Bernhard Ott has become somewhat of a Gruner-focused sensation. ‘Am Berg’ comes from certified biodynamic vineyards grown on terraced vineyards. The wine is crisp, linear, and seriously aromatic. Notes of snappy grapefruit, white pepper, and salty stone fruit dominate the wine’s food-friendly palate.
The bouquet promises fresh fruits and ripeness as well: yellow apple, honey melon, and a hint of quince. Subtle exotic hints enhance the juicy feeling on the palate, while the classic aspects of Grüner Veltliner with pronounced herbal, spicy, and peppery fruit are evident more during the long aftertaste. Bone dry with a vivid finish. An excellent drinking pleasure.
Grüner Veltliner is the “queen” of the white varieties in Austria. Its main characteristics are the fruity-spicy nose, also called “Pfefferl” referring to pepper.
This wine is crystal clear and straw-yellow with green highlights. Present and pronounced on the nose this wine displays stone fruit, delicate lime, and hints of ripe pear. On the palate there are flavors of juicy white peach and subtle hints of apricot. This wine is well balanced by a refined structure, very fresh, crisp and plush acidity.
