2017 Grüner Veltliner deLanda Vineyard
We are extremely passionate about Grüner Veltliner and are thrilled to show single vineyards expressing this exciting varietal.
deLanda is our 5 acre CCOF certified organic estate in Los Olivos. The Grüner is planted on a west facing slope and the soils are gravelly loam.
After a few hours of skin contact, the juice was pressed and fermented in tank with the addition of yeast, nutrients or any other additions. The wine was transferred to neutral oak barrel for 7 months and our two favorite barrels were select for this exclusive 48 case single vineyard bottling.
The most popular grape in Austria, Grüner Veltliner is a great alternative to Chardonnay, Viognier or Sauvignon Blanc. It is well balanced and versatile, and while it pairs perfectly with some pork or chicken schnitzel it also compliments most spring and summer vegetable dishes such as pasta primavera. It works as a great starter with appetizers, soups and salads as well.
