Grape(s): Gruner Veltliner
Localization: Kamptal, Austria
Tasting Notes: Lovely mossy, green, aromatic freshness mingles with very ripe pear fruit on the nose. Both these elements also play on the rounded, juicy and very ripe but also wonderfully fresh, almost zesty palate. Very moreish, aromatic and refreshing.
