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.

Grüner Veltliner on Snooth

  • Gruner Veltliner, arguably the original hipster wine, has grown up and become a standard in the classical pantheon of top white wines. Along the way it was revealed that in Austria, Gruner is often a simple table wine, served in crown-capped liter bottles and not the subject of fawning terms of endearment. Yes, Gruner Veltliner is capable of rem... Read More

  • Laurenz V Friendly Gruner Veltliner Case of 6 Bottles 2010


    Peach and citrus notes on the nose with some floral notes. Really good balanced complexity on the palate - floral with fruit and very strong (yet soft) tangy citrus notes, great acid. Good length. I thought this wine was much better served at a slightly warmer temperature than I would normally serve these types of crisp whites. It paired well wi... Read More

    Nose of quince, red currant and cranberry with lots of minerality. On the palate, the minerality turns a touch metallic. Flavors of cranberry, pomegranate and currant. Touch of strawberry. Crisp, dry and refreshing. 86 pts.5/9/13 at winery Read More

    A touch waxy on the nose there's plenty of peachy and mango toned citrus fruit here.A touch soft and round in the mouth, this delivers a nice mineral backed mouthful of lemon pith white peach and green plum flavors that lead to a firm, moderately long finish which shows a touch of mineral cut and a lingering hint of sweet green herb on the fina...

  • Pratsch Gruner Veltliner 2011


    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


    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


    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

  • Wimmer Czerny Gruner Veltliner Frumberg 2011


    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...
