This version of Grüner Veltliner is a lovely, richer expression of the grape we are most familiar with from Austria. Half of the blend comes from stainless steel fermentations, providing lovely brightness of acidity, minerality, parsley and some spicy white pepper heat on the palate. The other half is fermented in neutral French oak barrels along with bi-weekly lees stirring bringing out the richness and opulence of Grüner, adding an oily texture, dusty fruit aromas and a buttered toast finish.
