The Grüner Veltliner is a white grape variety. It is by far the most cultivated vine variety in Austria with around 30% of the hectares of vineyards in the country.
This vine produces a fairly aromatic, sharp white wine, full of aromas of citrus fruits, pineapples, aromatic herbs, almonds, rocks, cucumber and white pepper.
Its fulminating ascent, outside of Austria, is due to characteristics of finesse and elegance that make it unique.
However special conditions are needed: hills with good altitude and cold, to find the right balance between sugar, acidity and polyphenolic richness.
The Gruner is one of those wines that can explode if it is too ripe, so a good compromise between richness and acidity is the key to not obscuring its subtlety.
