Concerto is an extraordinary wine, standing apart even from its heralded Gruner Veltliner peers. This Gru-Vee is pressed from sweet, vine-ripened GV grapes hand-selected for their rich character and potential to produce a complex, explosive wine. Concerto is lean and tight, characterized by racy fruit flavors, with a slightly mineral undercurrent and a full, expansive finish. Like other Gru-Vees, Concerto is extremely versatile and pairs well with nearly all entrees. This wine is particularly outstanding served with grilled or roasted red meats, fish, and poultry.
Wine Maker Notes
Known for an explosive, fresh fruit palate and a bright aroma and color, Gru-Vees are remarkably versatile, surpassing even Riesling (known for its flexibility) because of their ability to pair with "difficult” foods such as artichokes and asparagus. Gruner Veltliner wines are also among sommeliers’ favorites, frequently besting the world’s finest Pinots, White Burgundies, and Chardonnays in tasting competitions. Austrian custom dictates that Gru-Vees be enjoyed soon after vintage, but Concerto and other exceptional Gruner Veltliners may be aged up to 15 years to enhance the wine’s details and intensity.
