Grüner Veltliner

Grüner Veltliner (spelled Gruener when the umlaut is not present and also known as Weissgipfler, Manhardsrebe Grüner Muskateller) is the most widely planted grape in Austria, making up for 1/3 of the country's wine production. Although the exact origins of the grape are unknown, records of its existence date as far back as Roman times. One parent is known to be Traminer, the other remains unknown. Gruener Veltiner is indigenous to Austria, though it is now being grown throughout the world including New Zealand and Oregon. Although Gruener Veltliner is grown throughout the country, it is predominantly known from the Wachau, Kamptal, Kremstal, Weinvertel and Wagram regions. Gruener Veltliner is extremely susceptible to its terroir taking on the soil and climate characteristics of each region dramatically.

  • Hofer Grüner Veltliner Trocken 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Mission: Picnic. This guy sports a crown cap, so bottle opener or lighter will surely assist popping open in seconds. The latest vintage 2007 rings in under $10, for 1000ml (not the standard 750ml) and could be out of stock by the start of summer. The usual profile of white pepper and crisp dried white fruits emerge on sniff and sip. My cheap-ch... Read More

    big lush Gruner with apple/citrus fruit and fresh snap pea, medium bodied with soft texture and long peppery finish. Really good stuff but a bit tight still. Needs some time to show its stuffing. Read More

When the two are put together the possibilities are endless.You see every dish is dynamicthey are all made up of parts that sum ... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Gruner veltliner comes in two forms. By day it is a wonderful well-rounded white wine popular in the wine bars of Vienna for an everyday glass. By night it is an age-worthy masterpiece of acidity and phenolic compounds vibing and interacting over years. Both are awesome wines and both have their place.
