2015 Grüner Veltliner
Veltliner accounts for approximately one-third of all the wine grapes grown in Austria, and is
widely planted in the Czech Republic and Slovakia as well, but only 94 acres are estimated to
be planted in California. And lucky Scheid, we have 1.9 of them! Grüner was first planted
on our Mesa del Rio Vineyard in 2010 because, truthfully, our winemaking team wanted it.
See, they’re wine geeks. And wine geeks love Grüner because it has a wonderful spicy
minerality combined with pop rock acidity, it’s über aromatic, and it’s a great wine to pair
with food. So their wish was granted (winemakers are hard to say ‘no’ to) and 2015 marks
our third vintage, with an expansion of Grüner to our Riverview Vineyard. Loads of tropical
fruit with a streak of peppery herbs and white flowers define the nose, while lively citrus
flavors and honey notes lead into a clean, crisp finish.
