Region: Kremstal, Lower Austria, Austria Grape(s): Grüner Veltliner Drinks Best: Now - 2 Years
The Mantler family has been growing grapes and making wine in the Kremstal region of Austria for several generations. Here, the loess soil and moderate weather are ideally suited to white grapes like the native Grüner Veltliner. We fell in love with the one liter bottle as soon as we tasted it with Josef and Agnes, the brother and sister team that visited us recently. It’s textbook Grüner, with mouthwatering freshness surrounded by elegant gardenia, white pepper, and apple on the nose and palate. The zippy, mineral-driven finish makes it an ideal food pairing wine that you’ll also be perfectly content to share on the porch with friends.
