Steininger, Grüner Veltliner "Grand Gru", Kamptal, Austria 2021
100% Gruner Veltliner
WHITE PEACH & LYCHEE, CRACKED STONE, HERBAL INTRIGUE
This Grüner from Niederösterreich’s iconic Kamptal region combines immense power and seductive elegance, offering a steadfast tide of mouthwatering green and golden fruit interlaced with flinty mineral. It deftly balances firm acidity with generous juiciness and a distinct impression of roundness derived, in part, from a luxurious fermentation and sur lie aging in large acacia barrels. Grüner grandeur!
Serving Suggestion: Cornish hen w/ delicate rosemary rub & lemon-seasoned white asparagus. Salt-crusted beef tenderloin w/ sour cream-horse radish sauce. Quiche Lorraine.
