2020 Gruner Veltliner
Grüner 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 just under 100 acres are estimated to be planted in California. We planted our first Grüner vines 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 and 2020 marks our eighth vintage of this delicious varietal. On the palate it is medium-bodied with balanced acidity and floral notes. Loads of citrus, green pear and guava define the wine, with a delicate hint of pineapple, stone fruit and tropical notes that lead into a clean, crisp finish.
