A dinner gift from The Calders.

They say the Gruner Veltliner (GV) is a second fiddle grape to the mighty Riesling but more than a third of growth in Austria is GV and it’s a very tasty drop indeed.

The Corkscrew described it thus:

“Displaying spice, refreshing citrus, apple and lightly exotic flavours, Graf Josef Grüner Veltliner is classic Austrian – elegant and sprightly with a touch of flair. Great to drink on its own”
