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.

Critical Acclaim

"Zocker flies under the radar with this Austrian variety, but insiders understand. The winery consistently produces one of the best in California. The wine leans toward the style of today’s dry, unoaked, low alcohol and crisply acidic white wines, with complex flavors of citrus fruit, nectarine, peach, honey and minerals. "

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.
