The grapes for this very charming wine are grown in the Kamptal region of Austria. Here, the Grüner Veltliner ripens in granite, gneiss, mica slate as well as loess soils. The northerly cool air streams from the rugged Waldivvertel region and results in a significant day and night temperature difference. This in turn slows the ripening process of the grapes, and it is the diurnal effect of warm days and cool nights that makes wines from this region taste so fresh and fruity. The most beautiful kind of "Cool Climate Viticulture".

Serving temperature: Very cold at 3-7°C
Storage: Up to 1 week after opening

About Light White

Light white wines are known for their dry and refreshingly tart flavour. Most light-bodied white wines are meant to be enjoyed young when they have maximum acidity and bold fruit.

These easy-drinking dry white wines are some of the most-sold wines in the world (even if red wines get more attention). Light whites are like the “beer of wine” and, for this reason, they are perfect to drink with most foods. Some of these wines are perfect for savory lovers (like Sauvignon Blanc and Grüner) with green herbal flavors of gooseberry and bell pepper.
