Growing Conditions

Vintage 2017 began with restorative rains that replenished soils, helped support vine growth and fortified our vineyards through the Spring. We started harvest on Mount Veeder after Labor Day with yields looking promising, as the sugars and acids in the grapes showed incredible balance. The rest of the mountain fruit came off the vine quickly with the consistently warm weather

Aging

100% Stainless steel fermented, 4 months in neutral oak

Food Pairing

Wonderful as an aperitif, Grüner Veltliner sports acid that will stand well with steamed fish sauced with rich capers. Asian inspired dishes also come to mind, the spicier the better. A favorite salad is arugula and goat cheese with honeydew melon and tart apple slices.
