Little Cricket Grüner Veltliner
Grüner Veltliner is a very food friendly wine, but also one to be appreciated as a varietal. As Jancis Robinson notes “I was slow to recognise Grüner Veltliner’s charms… several blind tastings… convince me that Grüner Veltliner was truly a great grape variety.”
It is Austria’s most widely planted grape variety and one of the primary white grapes in Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. This wine hails from the Pannon region of Hungary where it is locally known as Zöldveltelini.
A pale straw colour with typical light aromas of tropical fruits and a hint of honey. The palate is also light and very dry, but with a balanced sharpness and good structure of lingering crisp apples and zesty citrus with a medium-long finish.
Drink on its own or alongside salads, savoury starters, seafood dishes, pasta, tapas and sushi.
