graf josef, gruner veltliner, 2013

Delicious, light, fruity wine from Austria.

Crisp as a tayto, I can only imagine how refreshing this would be on a warm summer’s day.

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”
