Zocker Grüner Veltliner Wine Details
Price: $20.00 per bottle


Varietal Definition
Gruner Veltliner:
Widely grown in Austria, this white-wine grape is used to create the famous wines of the same name. The wines it produces are typically fermented dry, and are medium-bodied, lightly fruity and spicy, with naturally high acidity. A late ripener and moderately cold-resistant, this grape promises to do well in cool regions with extended growing seasons. Gruner Veltliner has yet to find a niche in North America, however the grape may gain greater attention with the renewed interest in its Germanic counterpart, Riesling, and the search for a white wine other than Chardonnay.
