Grüner Veltliner Ried Weinzierlberg Kremstal DAC 2012

With an impulsive aroma, reminiscent of green bananas and citrus, this is classic Kremstal Grüner Veltliner, with both juicy fruit character and persistent minerality and spice.

Tasting Notes

Brilliantly clear with just a touch of a golden hue. The nose is floral effused with mandarin essences, some herb garden undertones and the quintessential peppery tickle. There is a subtler citrus flavor on the palate that lingers, as well as some mellow spice notes.

Food Pairing

Pair with pan seared Chilean sea bass covered with herbs d’Provence & Beurre Blanc over steamed asparagus topped with lemon zest, and prosciutto.
