Wolfgang Gruner Veltliner Concerto 2006
Gruner Veltliner from Austria
Vinted at Wolfgang's award-winning wine estates on the shores of the Neusiedlersee in the heart of Austria's Burgenland province, Concerto Gruner-Veltliner (or "Gru-Vee") is a perfect example of Austria's best-loved white wine varietal. Neither sweet nor exceedingly dry, Gruner Veltliner wines are by far Austria's most popular whites; as a result, nearly all of the grape's annual yield is consumed domestically in Austria. The shoreline of middle Europe's only steppe lake provides an ideal climate for Wolfgang's cultivation of these powerful wines.
Concerto is an extraordinary wine, standing apart even from its heralded Gruner Veltliner peers. This Gru-Vee is pressed from sweet, vine-ripened GV grapes hand-selected for their rich character and potential to produce a complex, explosive wine. Concerto is lean and tight, characterized by racy fruit flavors, with a slightly mineral undercurrent and a full, expansive finish.
Like other Gru-Vees, Concerto is extremely versatile and pairs well with nearly all entrees. This wine is particularly outstanding served with grilled or roasted red meats, fish, and poultry.
Wolfgang's Gru-Vee wines showcase remarkable examples of Austria's heralded Gruner Veltliner grape, the centerpiece of Austrian wines that has swiftly become a favorite of sommeliers among the world's white varietals. Because nearly all of the annual Gru-Vee yield is consumed in Austria, the grape's charms have long been hidden from the rest of the world. In international tasting competitions, Gru-Vees have regularly outshone the world's finest Chardonnays and white Burgundies.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
