“G” grape entries

Grüner Veltliner

Native to Austria, the Grüner is the most widely planted grape in that country. It is also the most important, though it hasn't really caught on in other regions. Productive and rather hardy, although it ripens late, the Grüner is known for producing crisp and fresh wines that have notes of pepper, spices and grapefruits. Can improve for many years in bottle when given care, sometimes taking on the exotic fruit character of an aged Burgundy.

The best examples come from the Wachau, Kamptal and Kremstal regions of Austria. It also grows in other Easter European countries under the synonyms Veltlin Zelene and Veltlini. A great match for asian-inspired cuisine or spicy dishes.
