Markus Huber Hugo Gruner Veltliner 2017
Delicate fresh green apple fruity aromas. Displaying flavors of lemon, lime, and peaches. Solid fruit core. Rich in finesse with beautiful length and mineral tones.
The ideal wine for seafood, white meat and light dishes like salads; also very pleasant as a refreshing summer wine on a hot day, or just to be enjoyed by itself.
Absolute focus on the strengths of the region and the unique soil types that are found there ensure that year to year the wines display unmistakable clarity of fruit. "Sustainable development, carefully controlling the harvest and meticulous pruning are the most natural and important prerequisites for successful winemaking", says Markus. "Only that way can there be a harmonious merging of traditional and modern methods that create pure wines of unique provenance and character."
Fun to say and delightfully easy to drink, Grüner Veltliner calls Austria its homeland. While some easily quaffable Grüners come in a one-liter—a convenient size—many high caliber single vineyard bottlings can benefit from cellar aging. Somm Secret—About 75% of the world’s Grüner Veltliner comes from Austria but the variety is gaining ground in other countries, namely Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the United States.
