Gruner Veltliner Wine Details: A Harmony of Aromas and Flavors

Christina's Gruner Veltliner is a celebration of Austria's most beloved grape. Warm Pannonian days, cool nights, and the gentle caress of winds from the Danube River create an idyllic environment for these grapes to develop their distinctive profile. The result is a wine that beautifully marries ripeness with refreshing cherry aromas and a juicy palate.

  • Grape: 100% Gruner Veltliner
  • Cellar Approach: The grapes are carefully hand-harvested and destemmed into stainless steel tanks for a slow, spontaneous fermentation. Following this, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in old oak vats, where it matures for four additional months, enhancing its complexity and depth.
  • Personality: Echoing Christina's enthusiasm, this Gruner Veltliner shines with a light red hue tinged with purple, bursting with juicy cherry aromas, red berries, and a palate that is both soft and silky. The tannins are gentle, leading to a fresh and lively finish.

Whether a casual gathering with friends or a more formal dining experience, this wine promises to elevate the occasion with its elegance and charm.

A Tribute to Tradition and Innovation

Christina Netzl's Gruner Veltliner is more than just a wine; it reflects a family's love for their land, a commitment to organic farming, and a celebration of Austrian winemaking at its finest.
