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, Vienna Gruner-Veltliner (or "Gru-Vee") Wine 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.

Vienna is made with only the finest hand-selected grapes from a single Holle ("warm weather") vineyard. The wine is aged for six months in new oak barrels to achieve the famous taste upon which Wolfgang has built its reputation.

Like other Gru-Vees, Vienna 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.

My Notes:

About Wolfgang:

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.

Wolfgang Vineyards' wines are not only great examples of Gruner Veltliner, they're also a great place to start your exploration of all the country's great wines. Be on the lookout for new wines from Wolfgang Vineyards as they continue to introduce the world to Austria's wonderful wine varietals.
