Gruener Veltliner is extremely susceptible to its terroir taking on the soil and climate characteristics of each region dramatically.

  • Domane Wachau Gruner Veltliner Terraces 2012

    Snoothrank:

    BIG score for value in this great white wine!! Fragrant nose with notes of peach/nectarine, lime, meyer lemon, and some floral notes too. Medium bodied...full-mouth coating with great zippiness from lots of well integrated acid. More of the same fruit cocktail on the palate - lots of nectarine and maybe some ginger too. Great length with a reall... Read More

  • Winzer Krems Gruner Veltliner 2011

    Not much to this Austrian Gruner Veltliner. A bit of lemon cream, subtle touch of citrus but not much else. None of the floral notes or stone fruit one would expect, fairly flat. Read More
