Product Description:

"The scents and luscious fruitiness of apple and pear here could come from a Riesling. The flavors might be simple, but this is possessed of a silken texture allied to lovely freshness, with a hint of cress adding invigoration to the refreshingly lingering finish For his Grüner Veltliner, Rainer Wess uses fruit from two areas: the 5 hectare vineyard next to his winery in Krems and from several lower-slope sites in the Wachau towns of Unterloiben and Dürnstein. The warmer soils of these vineyards, composed of loam and silt (aka loess), gives a round, bright and juicy style of Grüner that is the perfect introduction to the Wess style. It is aged in tank and bottled and released in January." -Distributor
