2014 Gruner Veltliner (Zocker)

Zocker, Gruner Veltliner, Edna Valley, California 2014

100% Grüner Veltliner

CRISP PEAR, LIME & TROPICAL FRUIT, GRÜNER MINERALITY

Grüner Veltliner from the United States? The Niven family established Zocker for the specific purpose of bringing Grüner to California, and the "Paragon Vineyard" of Edna Valley, with its cooler climate and extended growing season, provides the perfect Pacific backdrop for the grape's home-away-from-home. Despite emerging from over 6,000 miles away from its native eastern Austria, this Grüner has brought with it the energetic fruit, gleaming minerality, and soft-spoken elegance we so admire. Prost!

Serving Suggestion: Decadent Viennese breaded & fried chicken garnished with lemon wedges and served with cornichons, dill, & parsley. Artichoke carpaccio with capers, chèvre, olive oil & lemon juice.

100% Gruner Veltliner

CRYSTALLINE MINERALITY, RICH YET RESTRAINED, TRADEMARK WHITE PEPPER

We adore the enchantingly unique qualities of Austria's Grüner Veltliner, and it's even easier to worship when it comes as a screaming value like this offering from Nastl out of Langenlois in Niederösterreich (lower Austria). The Nastl winery has been family-run since 1656, and all five members of the Nastl family are directly involved in the business, whether in the vineyards or in their "Heurigen," a classic example of an Austrian wine restaurant which serves homemade wine with homemade dishes. This wine is strikingly refreshing with fierce minerality and the hallmark Grüner tingle of white pepper on the finish.

Serving Suggestion: A spread of crostini from Toast in downtown Durham: chicken liver, pancetta, & pickled fennel: warm goat cheese, local honey, & black pepper; garlicky mushrooms, thyme, & gorgonzola.

100% Gruner Veltliner

VIBRANT CITRUS & PEACH,  WHITE PEPPER & MINERAL, GRÜNER GOLD

Hailing from the precariously steep inclines of the Wachau’s vineyards, the always-excellent T26 cuvée takes its name from an eventful tasting session with Austrian importer, Klaus Wittauer, who was in the Mittelbach family cellar at their Tegernseerhof winery, searching for his absolute favorite among the estate’s tanks of recently vinified less-expensive Grüner.  When he found the one, he exclaimed, "This is it!  I'll take the whole tank."  That tank was #26, and “T26" has sense served as the nickname for the estate’s greatest value outing in Grüner Veltliner each year. Classic stone-fruit and zesty citrus carry notes of the variety’s hallmark white pepper and flint. Prost!

Serving Suggestion: Juicy fried or oven-roasted chicken w/ crisp skin. Wiener Schnitzel or other breaded, fried cutlets. Mild, flavorful cheeses.

LIME ZEST & NECTARINE, GENTLE MINERAL, GRANNY SMITH

Anton Bauer’s Austrian offerings are a generation’s worth of ambassadors from the central European nation’s world of wine. For many living in NC, his “Gmork” served as an inaugural Grüner. As Austrian wine has exploded into popularity stateside, prices have understandably not remained static, but this delightful Grüner cuvée (a Grüvée?) brings us back down to earth and kicks it old-school Österreich with the kind of awesome value that we recall from almost bygone days. Prost to this classic Grüner!

{biodynamic} 100% Grüner Veltliner

CRISP GREEN APPLE, EXOTIC FLORAL, LIGHTLY SMOKY MINERALS

While Grüner Veltliner is not typical from Burgenland, this is a standout for its dry racy style layered with exotic citrus, fresh zippy texture and lip smacking dry acidity.

JUICY WHITE STONE FRUIT, MINERALITY, POWER & ELEGANCE

On a wine buying trip in Austria, Paul Direder stood before us looking barely old enough to drive.

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.
