Featured Rep: Stephanie
Austria's most famous varietal, this Grüner Veltliner's aromatic nose suggests arugula, lime and ripe lemon. With an Emerald straw color, the palate is juicy and easy, with lots of pear fruit and more fresh lemon. A dry, medium body wine with delightful notes of cherry blossom, almond, and fruity tannins. A summer wine par excellence with a refreshing, dry finish of pleasant floral notes.
Zweigelt Pinot Noir
A 50/50 blend of an Austrian varietal, with a well known varietal grown in Austria. There are ripe, almost cooked notes of cherry on the nose of this wine, with a cinnamon edge. Deep ruby in color, like crushed raspberries, the palate is much fresher but still plush, with luscious cherry and a touch of spice. Satiny in texture, with pithy tannins, there is freshness and drive in this little fruit bomb, which finishes with notes of lingering apple, mineral, and wet cedar.
