2018 Grüner Veltliner Spear Vineyard
The most popular grape in Austria, Grüner Veltliner is a great alternative to Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. We are extremely passionate about Grüner Veltliner and are excited to release this 2018 single vineyard Grüner from the Spear Vineyard. This organic Santa Rita Hills vineyard showcases California Grüner grown near the sea. Ocean fog and sandy soils contribute to its expressive citrus and salinity. The Grüner was planted in the lowest and coolest spot on the 100 acre property and retains wonderful acidity and freshness. The vines native to Austria have taken incredibly well to Spear's sandy soils and climate.
It is well balanced, versatile, and food friendly; pairing well with fish, summer soups, spring salads and vegetables including hard to match items like asparagus. We especially love it with a traditional chicken, pork or veal schnitzel!
