Wine Searcher review

Grüner Veltliner wines are well textured, but very refreshing and crispy, focused on minerality and citrus character. With time they soften and take in honeyed, candied fruit-like flavors that match their deep golden hue.
This is the story of how one of the most exciting wine regions in Austria came into being. For millions of years, the Danube River has carved its serpentine path through solid soils, and today the rocky terraces provide places for growing grapes. Two grape varieties are mainly cultivated in this region: Riesling and Grüner Veltliner.
