Grüner Veltliner “Trum” Federspiel

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 among 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. The typical flavor profile is often described as displaying elements of green apple with an unmistakable white pepper spiciness.

The Gneiss soils of the Trum vineyard lend this Grüner Veltliner an elegant and precise minerality, perfectly complementing the spice. Near in proximity to the famed Schütt vineyard, Trum benefits from similar micro-climactic conditions.
