Winemaker's Notes:

This bright wine shows off aromas of fresh pear and crisp apple, with notes of melon and grapefruit. A trace of minerality, along with flavors of ripe stone fruits and grapefruit, follows. This Grüner is light bodied with a nicely balanced acid structure, and a juicy lemon/orange finish.

About Zocker:

Zocker is an American winery that produces wines made exclusively from the white varietals of Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. The grapes are grown on the Niven family’ famed Paragon Vineyard in the Edna Valley on the Central Coast of California, and the wines are made by veteran French winemaker Christian Roguenant. The latest project of Niven Family Wine Estates, Zocker (Austrian word for Gambler) is likely their riskiest venture yet, as these varietals are far from conventional.
