Steininger Gruner Veltliner "Classic" Kamptal 2012 Product #27309 (In Stock)
Steininger Gruner Veltliner Steininger Gruner Veltliner

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 Seckt 2011 Product #27835 (In Stock)

So, what happens when you take a great still wine – in this case, the 2011 Grüner Veltliner Kamptal– and give it a little fizz?  Pure joy ensues!

Steininger is Kamptal’s top producer of sparkling wines and one of the very best in all of Austria.  The family specializes in single varietal, single vintage, fizz that showcases the character of the grape and growing season.  The 2011 Grüner Veltliner Sekt is a beauty, at once creamy and full of classic Grüner fruit and terrifically dry and vibrant.  The in-bottle secondary fermentation delivers plenty of fizz, but this still reads “Grüner” with bright apple, green pea, and white pepper notes.  Easy to sip on its own and fun to pair with savory sausage or freshwater fish.

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2012 Product #28056 (In Stock)
Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2012 Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2012

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.
