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. For example, Gruener from the Kamptal is often recognized as a more mineral style whilst Gruener from the Wachau is much more serious and acidic. Typically, Gruener Veltliner is recognized as Read more »

Grüner Veltliner on Snooth

  • Pratsch Gruner Veltliner 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly aromatic on the nose with hints o white pepper and dried grass accenting the lime and green pear aromas. Rather spritzy right out of the bottle. This shows off rather assertively dried herbal and lightly spicy flavors with good intensity. There's some subtle fruit here, lime pith and melon rind, but this is as savory as it is fruity and ...

  • Dancing Coyote Gruner Veltliner 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Peppery and a little green on the nose though there is a little over-ripeness here with honied and cooked fruit aromas of peach and white cherry thats a bit waxy. This enters the mouth with a nice level of richness and good, firm acids. There's plenty of fruit here but it's much fresher than the nose would indicate. There's a light grassy note h... Read More

  • Nautilus Gruner Veltliner Marlborough Nz 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Rather subtle with lime zest aromas and gentle green pea, cactus leaf and green peppercorn aromas. A touch soft in the mouth, and relatively light bodied though there is some attractive depth to the citrus pith flavors that are colored with green herb and peppercorn shadings. The finish shows more of a lemon/pineapple aspect to the fruit as well... Read More

    Pops on the nose with an early rush of yeastiness followed by aromas of mineral talc, violet floral notes, light hints of peach and tangerine topped with a light minty note.This enters the mouth with a fair amount of richness and intensity, very round on the palate though with nice mineral/acid cut. There's a lot of peppery flavor here along wit... Read More

  • Wimmer Czerny Gruner Veltliner Frumberg 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty and soft on the nose with honeycomb and smoky, gravel aromas that gain intensity and are joined by hints of tree bark and white pepper with air. A touch soft in the mouth, this is broad and supple with nice mineral and slightly candied citrus and pear flavors. Showing nice detail on a modest scale, this gains lovely floral notes on the ba...

    Wine review by alanb1108


  • Gruner Veltliner Eiswein. Schloss Gobelsburg 2011

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was intense yet soothing, showing ripe peach, hints of citrus, wet rock and stony minerals. On the palate, it was fresh yet lush, seeming to touch on all of the senses with notes of sweet stone fruits, citrus and inner floral tones. The finish was long, turning slightly tart, tinged with green apple and minerals. (93 points) Read More
