Gruener Veltliner Loess 2015, 12% alc., White Dry, medium body
Characteristics: On the nose are aromas of hay and spice with a whiff of rhubarb; flowery and still a bit reserved. Lean and compact with yellow fruit nuances. With its depth, this wine is a classic expression of the Danube vineyards – a bit of roundness and suppleness combined with a lengthy finish.
Food pairing: Seafood, fish, light cooked poultry and light pastas.
Grape Variety: Gruener Veltliner. Ideal serving temperature: 8-10°C
