Dr. Frank Grüner Veltliner

Dr. Frank Grüner Veltliner Wine Details
Price: $20.00 per bottle

Description: The 2011 Grüner Veltliner fits perfectly within the Dr. Frank family of wines. The wonderful nose is a treat of floral, melon and honeysuckle while the mouth has subtle herbal notes and balanced layered textures in the background that finish off with the typical Grüner Veltliner white pepper heat. It is food friendly wine and pairs well with everything from scallops and roasted vegetables to grilled pork tenderloin.

Varietal Definition
Gruner Veltliner:
Widely grown in Austria, this white-wine grape is used to create the famous wines of the same name. The wines it produces are typically fermented dry, and are medium-bodied, lightly fruity and spicy, with naturally high acidity. A late ripener and moderately cold-resistant, this grape promises to do well in cool regions with extended growing seasons. Gruner Veltliner has yet to find a niche in North America, however the grape may gain greater attention with the renewed interest in its Germanic counterpart, Riesling, and the search for a white wine other than Chardonnay.
