- Steininger Gruner Veltliner "Classic" Kamptal 2012 Product #27309 (In Stock)
A long-time favorite has even more concentration, purity, and depth of fruit in the outstanding 2012 harvest. Way under-priced!
"Quite young and firm, though worth stocking up on now for later in the summer, when it should be more relaxed. It shows the classic white-flower flavors of peach blossom and jasmine, with a hint of citrus and perfumed with talc. And at a modest 12.5 percent, the alcohol does not get in the way." Washington Post ** ("Excellent")
- Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2011 Product #26551 (In Stock)
Karl and Eva Steininger make a range of delicious wines from Austria’s best white grape, and they intend the Grand Grü to be the top of their line. The name is a fun play on words – evoking both the French concept of “Grand Cru” quality and the Steininger’s belief that this is a “Grand” Grüner Veltliner! Fruit for this wine comes from the Steininger’s best vineyard and is harvested in very late September or October. The ripe fruit ferments in stainless steel and then goes into large Acacia wood casks for malolactic fermentation and aging.
Pour a glass and you’ll meet generous aromas of creamy ripe pear, peach, and apricot. Take a sip and you’ll find autumn fruits – golden pear and apple – plus lime zest and citrus with a dash of baking spice and hints of classing Grüner white pepper. The texture is creamy and rich with plenty of acidity to keep things fresh and refreshing. The finish is long, mouthwatering, and features a hint of lime, ginger and spice as it lingers. Rich and round enough to handle the full range of Thanksgiving Dinner favorites and clean and juicy enough to keep you coming back for more.
