2019 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 2019 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.
This 2019 Grüner Veltliner might be our favorite vintage yet. It's incredibly bright and zippy with aromas of tart green apples and delicate herbs like Thyme and Tarragon. It's refreshing on the palate with citrus notes making it an amazing food wine that's hard not to love. Try pairing it with chicken piccata or asparagus risotto.
