Celebrate Grüner Veltliner boasts fresh aromas of lemon, lime, cucumber, peach, mango, and passionfruit, with a hint of white flowers and freshly cut grass. The tropical fruit, cucumber, and peach continue on the palate, with green apple, pear, and a very light, crisp body and finish. This wine is perfect for toasting any occasion or pairing with fresh seafood or a light salad.

The grapes were harvested by hand, whole cluster pressed, and fermented in stainless. To sparkle, the wine was transferred to a high pressure tank, and the pressure was slowly raised over five days until the ideal levels were achieved.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve well-chilled, around 45°F (7°C) in a Champagne flute or white wine glass. It’s a refreshing aperitif on its own, but also pairs well with a range of foods. Grüner Veltliner is known for its versatility, and the sparkling version is no different.
Pair with seafood like oysters, shrimp, and scallops, or try with sushi, ceviche, or smoked salmon. The bright acidity and minerality will also complement salads with vinaigrette dressings, goat cheese or feta, and light vegetable dishes.
For a more substantial pairing, try with white meats like chicken, pork, or turkey, or with vegetarian dishes featuring mushrooms, asparagus, or artichokes. It’s also a great match for spicy Asian or Indian cuisine, cutting through the heat and enhancing the flavors.
For dessert, pair with light, fruit-based desserts like sorbet, fruit tarts, or a fresh fruit plate.
Enjoy this unique sparkling Grüner Veltliner on its own or paired with your favorite foods.
