Little Cricket Gruner Vertliner
Gruner 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 apple and a hint of honey. The palate is also light but with a good structure followed by lingering crisp apples and a citrus finish.
Drink on its own or alongside salads, savoury starters, seafood dishes, pasta, tapas and sushi.
