2019 , Stadt Krems Grüner Veltliner, Kremstal Austria
Weingut Stadt Krems was founded in 1452 as a source of revenue for the hospital of Krems and is one of the oldest wineries in Austria. The municipality of Krems still owns the 560-year-old winery and is today one of the best in the region! Grüner Veltliner is the signature grape of Austria and produces a dry white wine with savory aromas, spicy flavors, and good acidity. Fresh-tasting with notes of green apple, lemon, radish, and arugula.
Grüner Veltliner’s bright acidity and savory character make it an ideal partner to:
- mildly spiced Vietnamese
- Thai and Chinese dishes.
- Fish and shellfish are accented by Grüner Veltliner’s citrus and mineral profile while its acidity cuts the richness of pork or ham.
- It can also work well with foods that are difficult to pair such as bitter greens and asparagus.
