Grüner Veltliner Estate 2017

Raptor Ridge

Grüner Veltliner is a racy white wine grape varietal grown primarily in the Loess soils of Austria, Slovakia and in the Czech Republic. In 2006 we planted this varietal in the Loess soils of our Estate Vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains. Grüner has a reputation of being a particularly food-friendly wine that works with a variety of cuisine such as shellfish, white meats or spicy food. This acid-and-citrus-driven wine can punch through to deliver zest and cleanse the palate.

Reviews

  • "88 points. Very pale yellow. Tightly focused on the nose and palate, displaying nervy lemon pith and pear skin qualities and a touch of smoky minerality. In a clean, racy style, delivering good closing bite and a lingering suggestion of bitter citrus zest." (vinous)
