GOLD STANDARD Gruner Veltliner!

April 22, 2024

When it comes to Austrian Gruner Veltliner, no other winery has attained such accolades and a high level of recognition. 


Kracher has become synonymous with wines of ultimate perfection.


What is their secret? 


The winery is situated in a near-perfect microclimate and owns some of the oldest vines in Europe!


Prepare yourself for a burst of stone fruit, white pepper, oyster shells, herbs, and a hint of mint on both the nose and palate.


Kracher's Gruner has aptly been described as "Albarino meets Chablis."  Fresh white plums, green apple, orange zest, and subtle apricot notes surround racy acidity.  Lively and vibrant with lift from start to finish.  Classic Austrian high-elevation style and stature provide the wine with great aging potential, though wonderfully enjoyable right of the glass today!


The Gold Standard


Like all great Austrian Gruners, Karcher's stainless steel finishing creates laser-focused minerality. After the first sip, you will notice its inviting, mouth-watering, refreshing acidity, a spine of stone fruit, pear, and green apple. 


From seafood to salads, enjoy this gorgeous Gruner all Spring and Summer. It also pairs extremely well with schnitzel or grilled bratwurst.  


Asparagus - a nearly impossible food pairing vegetable - is right at home with this gorgeous Gruner.


Enjoy as a fantastic white wine alternative to Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc!
