Forstreiter ‘Grooner’ Grüner Veltliner 2013

grooner

Fun and friendly, this is a summery, versatile Grüner.

The ‘Grooner’ brand is the brainchild of Monika Caha & Toni Silver of Monika Caha Selections, along with winemaker Meinhard Forstreiter of Weingut Forstreiter. Created in 2006, the objective of Grooner was “to target price-conscious retail consumers looking for a fun “new” drinking experience” specifically in the US. Along with a fun, hipster vibe label, the phonetic spelling of ‘Grooner’ gives everyone a helping hand when it comes to pronouncing the Austrian varietal.

Winemaking: Grapes were sourced from the Forstreiter’s family 69 acre vineyard located on the banks of the Danube in Krems-Hollenburg in the Kremstal, Niederösterreich, Austria.

Tasting Notes: Palest gold in colour with aromas of fresh lemon and wet slate. Lemon, honeysuckle and herbaceous traces were underscored by a bright acidity, whilst clean minerals along with hints of white pepper and coconut comprised the zippy finish.
