The flagship grape of Austria, Grüner Veltliner is a natural cross of Traminer and St. Georgen. Grüner accounts for almost 30% of all grapes planted with around 13,500 hectares under vine in the country. The Austrian native has become an international sensation amongst sommeliers worldwide as the perfect food wine due to its high acidity. In Austria it is prized for the easy drinking wine it produces but can also wow the palate with complexity in the right winemaker’s hands.
Ingrid’s “In der Schablau” vineyard is composed of variable conglomerate soils, which lend this single-vineyard bottling a complex mix of aromas, from yellow fruits to tobacco. Mineralic and spicy on the palate, this Grüner pairs well with white meats and cheeses, and will even stand up to red meat dishes.
