In Austria, Grüner Veltliner is as much a part of the national culture as classical music, elegant coffee houses, and competitive bodybuilding. For years, Grüner has been traditionally bottled in a liter-sized bottle with a crown cap – intended for fresh, immediate consumption and for sharing among friends. Although all iterations of this grape are gaining notoriety in the United States, it is still the original, utilitarian liter “house wines” that remain the most popular.
No doubt this will go down as one of our most popular wines as the weather warms up. How can you not like the brilliant freshness that compliments the crisp, dry flavors of apple, grapefruit and white pepper.
