Bright greenish yellow with enticing aromas of white pepper, delicate herbal notes, tropical fruits and hints of ripe yellow apple. Medium bodied with crisp acidity and harmonious, juicy fruits and a long spicy. Grüner Veltliner (say grooner felt-leener) is Austria's signature white grape, and will appeal to those who like Pinot Grigio or unoaked Chardonnay. The word 'federspiel' is a special quality tier for wines from the Wachau region only, and this is the middle of three levels. Riper fruit from finer terroir with greater body and concentration are what you can expect from a Federspiel. Dry, savoury and textured, this is a great wine for halibut or sablefish, and absolutely classic with succulent wiener schnitzel.
