The Funkstille Gruner Veltliner is a crisp, dry Austrian Gruner Veltliner from the region of Niederösterreich.
Primarily there are notes of pear, melon and citrus. These come through on the nose with a refreshing and zesty finish on the palate.
Interestingly, the Gruner Veltliner grapes are harvested from 15 year + old vines in the Niederösterreich (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lower_Austria). The vineyard is sited on clay and limestone soils, and moreover the climate is cool continental. As a result, this yields a wine with refreshing acidity and primary fruit flavours.
After careful picking, the must is fermented in stainless steel tank with no malolactic fermentation. However then this wine has 8 weeks of lees contact. Finally, there is the process of gentle fining and cold stabilisation.
For the Funkstille Gruner Veltliner, we recommend to pair with chicken, turkey or fresh fish/salad.
