In this video we take a look at Gruner Veltliner

Austria‘s most widely planted grape variety, where, in quality regions like the Wachau, Kamptal and Kremstal, it can produce an assertive, steely, rich dry white with a unique aroma and flavour. For some it hints at white pepper and celery, while others prefer the descriptors of gherkins and dill. Either way, there’s often an unusual, alluring herbiness in what, at its best, can be an excellent, steely dry white.
