Varietal: Gruner Veltliner

The highly versatile Gruner Veltliner varietal grapes have been grown for many centuries in central and eastern European countries, and are still widely drunk and celebrated around Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia. Whilst they are not seen much elsewhere around the world, in recent years they have been cultivated in certain parts of the United States and in a few other New World countries. These pale skinned grapes grow most successfully in cooler climates, and are popular with wineries due to the fact that they are relatively hardy and resistant to disease. Gruner Veltliner grapes are also much appreciated for the fact that they hold some unique flavors which come about because they express their terroir very well, and are often most commonly associated with flavors of citrus fruits, peaches and peppery, tobacco notes.

Region: Wachau

Wachau is an ancient Austrian wine region, and is responsible for producing the majority of Austria's fine wines. The beautiful Gruner Veltliner and Riesling grapes which grow in the fertile vineyards of Wachau, along the banks of the ancient and mighty river Danube, are used to make wines of real distinction and character, often made with age old, traditional techniques which have been passed down through the generations of family wineries. The climatic conditions in Wachau are ideal for growing these and other grape varietals, as the long and warm summers offer plenty of time in which the grapes can ripen fully. As such, they can take on plenty of characteristics of their wonderful terroir, alongside beautiful floral and earthy flavors, and a wide range of elegant aromas.

Country: Austria

Austria has a wonderfully long and illustrious history of wine production which stretches back over four thousand years, and reached its zenith under the Austria-Hungary dual monarchy in the late 19th century, when Vienna was one of the most important centers of culture and fine living in the world. Today, Austria's fertile soils and long, hot summers help the fifty thousand hectares of vineyards in the country achieve exceptionally high quality yields, which are used primarily for the production of the elegant dry white wines for which the country is renowned. The most important grape varietal is still Grüner Veltliner, although many wineries are beginning to expand their repertoire and experiment with many imported grapes from France and further afield, including Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
