Felix Gruner Veltliner 2019

$ 10.35

Austria's best Gruner Veltliners come from the region known as Lower Austria ("Niederosterreich") and the valleys carved by the Danube and its tributaries. One of these valleys, the Kamptal, is home to producer Steinschaden, a family operation that has been known for its expertise in producing Gruner Veltliner according to the classic standards set by the Kamptal region for many generations. We started working with Steinschaden because we have not met another producer who manages to deliver the same quality at this price. This Gruner Veltliner won the Austrian Salon tasting competition where winemakers taset and rate the region's wines, and for good reason: the Felix is as classic a Gruner as you can find, showing the typical apple, pear and herbal notes, followed by a fresh and peppery finish. Immensely quaffable, this wine wants to be drunk in its youth but will last a good 3-5 years if cellared.
