Winemaker's Notes

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.
