Wolfgang Vineyards Gruner Veltliner Gru-Vee Concerto 1.75L 2007   
Sku: 15791

Vinted at our award-winning wine estates on the shores of the Neusiedlersee in the heart of Austria’s Burgenland province, Wolfgang Gruner-Veltliner (or "Gru-Vee”) Wine is a perfect example of Austria’s best-loved white wine varietal. Neither sweet nor exceedingly dry, Gruner Veltliner wines are by far Austria’s most popular whites; as a result, nearly all of the grape’s annual yield is consumed domestically in Austria. The shoreline of middle Europe’s only steppe lake provides an ideal climate for our vineyard’s cultivation of these powerful wines

Tasting notes
Concerto is an extraordinary wine, standing apart even from its heralded Gruner Veltliner peers. This Gru-Vee is pressed from sweet, vine-ripened GV grapes hand-selected for their rich character and potential to produce a complex, explosive wine. Concerto is lean and tight, characterized by racy fruit flavors, with a slightly mineral undercurrent and a full, expansive finish.

Wine maker notes
Known for an explosive, fresh fruit palate and a bright aroma and color, Gru-Vees are remarkably versatile, surpassing even Riesling (known for its flexibility) because of their ability to pair with "difficult” foods such as artichokes and asparagus. Gruner Veltliner wines are also among sommeliers’ favorites, frequently besting the world’s finest Pinots, White Burgundies, and Chardonnays in tasting competitions. Austrian custom dictates that Gru-Vees be enjoyed soon after vintage, but Concerto and other exceptional Gruner Veltliners may be aged up to 15 years to enhance the wine’s details and intensity.

Technical notes
Alcohol: 13%; Dry extract: 22.9 g/l; Sugar free extract: 21 g/l; Reducing sugars: 1.9 g/l; Total acidity 1.9 g/l

Food pairing
Like other Gru-Vees, Concerto is extremely versatile and pairs well with nearly all entrees. This wine is particularly outstanding served with grilled or roasted red meats, fish, and poultry.
