Winemaker's Notes

Bright straw yellow in color. An open and inviting bouquet, subtle fruitiness with hints of white pepper, tobacco and mellow nutty aromas. On the palate powerful with exciting, concentrated fruit (pear) with hints of acacia. The alcohol, acidity and structure of the wine are perfectly balanced, a wine with a long finish. Grüner Veltliner Smaragd is a perfect accompaniment to fried fish dishes or fish with creamy sauces but also to fried meat (Cordon blue, fried chicken) and a wide variety of poultry.

Critical Acclaim

"Exuberant, like biting into a red peach, this has plenty of crisp acidity, with notes of pineapple and spice. The creamy finish features vanilla and hints of coffee. Drink now through 2015. 2,500 cases made."
