2007 Weingut Allram Grüner Veltliner 1L (some damaged labels)

SKU #1043306

This is a new DI property for us producing great wines from some of the top sites in the Kamptal. Michaela Haas is the 4th generation of this family to run the 15 ha domaine. Fermented and aged in stainless steel and bottled with a crown cap this is the perfect liter, fresh, light and snappy; delivering all the thirst quenching you look for in a wine like this. The nose is textbook Gruner Veltliner filled with spice and pepper, snap pea and grapefruit. It is sleek, focused and juicy owing to the wonderful bright acid structure of the vintage. Enjoy over the next couple of years.

If you’re a white wine drinker, that is, an imbiber of the lower alcohol, clean as a whistle, higher acid style of white wine that seems to only be made in the Old World, then you’re going to love our newest direct import. Produced from various Kamptal vineyards, this shows bright, pure citrus fruit and the classic stylings of the 2007 vintage in Austria. A terrific value in white wine.

Everyone needs a case of this wine available in their house at all times. If more people in the world knew how good Gruner Veltliner was, and how it would probably be their favorite white wine for life if they tried it, there would be a shortage world wide. Weingut Allram is a new direct import for us, which means everyone saves lots of money! This wine is bottled in the traditional Austrian liter with a bottle cap on top. It's been a smash hit for me whereever I have taken it because people like delicious, crisp, fruity wine with lots of depth and stunning minerality (and I like paying ten bucks and telling them it cost 20).

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Gruner Veltliner

- Grüner Veltliner is the most widely planted grape variety in Austria, making up about a third of all the vineyard land in the country, according to importer extraordinaire Terry Thiese. The varietal has definitely increased in popularity of the past few years, as sommeliers and wine directors loaded their lists with this spicy white because it pairs well with so many things. Its bouquet has been described as floral, tending to toward musky, with hints of peppery greens, lentils, citrus and red fruit with a distinctive mineral quality. In the mouth the wine can be broad or precise, but is almost always distinguished by bracing acidity and flavors that mirror the nose. A notoriously good ager, you can drink GrüVes in their youth, or let them evolve in complexity in your cellar.
Country:

Austria

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
