WOW: "Singing" The Praises of Gruner Veltliner!

WOW: Wine of the Week

"Singing" The Praises of Gruner Veltliner!
Line 39 WinesGrown most prevalently in Austria, the Gruner Veltliner is an under utilized wine, that is VERY food friendly!  Gruner Veltliner is actually believed to date back to Roman times.  So, while this may be a newer varietal to this continent, it has proven its staying power through the years.  This week's WOW is a shining example of a quality product and one in which illustrates a true representation of the fruit.

Product Description

"Laurenz V was created for white wine lovers everywhere. The winery focuses on a single wine variety--Grüner Veltliner--that has long been a  favorite in its native Austria, where it represents nearly a third of the country's wine grape production. Grüner Veltliner has been  quickly catching on in the rest of the world, too!
Laurenz V is made by the Lenz Moser family, and is the most recent offering in the family's five  generations of wine making experience. The wine comes from the Kamptal and Kremstal areas of lower Austria where the warmth  of the Danube Valley meets the cool air of the Waldviertel region. This combination develops fresh, fruity flavors in grapes  while maintaining excellent acidity. The winery makes two wines—Laurenz V. Charming Grüner Veltliner from Kamptal, and Laurenz  und Sophie Singing Grüner Veltliner, a wine inspired by Lenz' daughter Sophie, predominantly from Kremstal." - Winery Notes

Laurenz "Singing" Gruner Veltliner 2014 Tasting Notes

A very attractive fruit bouquet yields apple, peach and citrus aromas along with a typical Veltliner spiciness and a touch of white pepper. The soft and juicy palate is supported by fine acidity.
