Tegernseerhof, Grüner Veltliner "Bergdistel" Wachau, Austria 2021
100% Grüner Veltliner
NECTARINE & KEY LIME, CORIANDER SEED & FLINT
Harvested at the lower reaches of the steeply sloping (and typically steeply-priced) Loibenberg and Weissenkirchen vineyards, this distinctly golden, ripe, full-figured Grüner is of the legally defined “Smaragd” designation – a celebration of ripeness, power, and impeccable balance named for the region’s beautiful, emerald-hued lizards. It looms with ripe stone fruit, racy citrus, and vibrant, peppery mineral – more than satisfying our thirsts for power and finesse.
Serving Suggestion: Tea-smoked duck & kung pao lotus root. Crispy fried potato pancakes w/ cashew-lemon sour cream & fresh dill.
