2016 Grüner Veltliner (1 liter) (Paul D.)

Paul D., Grüner Veltliner [1 liter], Wagram, Austria, 2016

{sustainable} 100% Gruner Veltliner

FRESH APPLE, CREAMY MELON, SPRITZY PEPPERCORN

On a wine buying trip in Austria, Paul Direder stood before us looking barely old enough to drive. He smiled as we sampled his wine and stood nervously with his mother at his side waiting for a reaction. His first vintage was brilliant. The family farm dates back to 1849 and Paul D. carries on the family's agricultural name. Under the tutelage of Anton Bauer, Paul gives us a bright, fresh Grüner Veltliner in a dry floral style that has crisp acidity and pure drinkability.

Serving Suggestion: Perfect for beach blankets and summer hangouts. Picnic foods like chicken salad, tuna salad, and egg salad sandwiches.

2017 Rosé (1 liter) (Paul D.)

Paul D., Rosé [1 liter], Wagram, Austria, 2017

Zweigelt, Blauberger

BRIGHT RASPBERRY & CHERRY, CLEAN & LEAN, VERY DRY WITH GENEROUS FRUIT

The newest arrival from Paul Direder's small, coveted, and impressively affordable stable of Wagram-borne wines is a rosé featuring the collaboration between two quintessentially Austrian red grapes. The Zweigelt grape and its lesser-known half-brother, Blauburger, have less than a century of existence under their belts, but that doesn't deter them from fueling this light-bodied, pale, and very flavorful dry rosé with spry wisdom and vibrant energy. Relatively low in alcohol, this is destined to become one of our favorite diurnal sippers in no time!

Serving Suggestion: Yakitori skewers – chicken, quail egg, & pork belly! Other preparations of crispy grilled chicken. Peppery fried red cabbage, onion, & diced pineapple.

2014 Zweigelt (1 liter) (Paul D.)

Paul D., Zweigelt, Wagram, Austria, 2014

100% Zweigelt

SPICY EARTH, RASPBERRY FRUIT, DELICIOUS

On a wine buying trip in Austria, Paul Direder stood before me looking barely old enough to drive. He smiled as we sampled his wine and stood nervously with his mother at his side waiting for a reaction. His first vintages were brilliant and he's still just 20 years old. The family farm dates back to 1849 and Paul D. carries on the family's agricultural name with none other than Anton Bauer as his mentor. Austria's Zweigelt grape varietal is something like a zin/pinot noir/ montepulciano. Spicy, medium to full-bodied, balanced raspberry fruit but not a drop of oak to be found here. Pure drinkability and a possible house red this summer. It's also 1 liter (33% more than a regular bottle). You are tasting a rising star in Austrian winemaking. Serve cool, with a slight chill.

Serving Suggestion: An essential summer red drinking wine for the beach, picnics, and all kinds of off the grill foods like fish, chicken and burgers.
