Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2016 Product #32694 (In Stock)
Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2016 Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2016

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.

We often feature the rich, creamy, Grand Grü for Thanksgiving, and (as many of you know), the 2016 handled that cacophony of flavors with ease.  But in the great 2016 vintage, Carl and Brigita Steininger’s top white soars to new heights, matching the base notes of ripe pear fruit with top notes of citrusy and green apple acidity.  The combination of richness and freshness makes this the perfect white to bridge the chill of winter and sunny warmth of spring – or to enjoy anytime at all.

"This wine's subdued nose just hints at pear and yeast. The palate combines fresh, pure green pear fruit with a slightly textured, sonorous hint of sage and soy-scented yeast. The overall tone is one of wonderfully rich pear fruit."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Sekt 2015 Product #33158 (In Stock)
Steininger Gruner Veltliner Sekt 2015 Steininger Gruner Veltliner Sekt 2015

So, what happens when you take a great still wine – in this case, the 2015 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 2015 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.
