[CSH304] (GROO-nuhr FELT-lee-nuhr) Gruner Veltliner has been grown in Austria since before the Romans conquered the land. It is Austria’s indigenous grape variety. Today, at least 2000 years after its first plantings, it is still Austria’s most widely planted grape. Like Chardonnay, it is a full-bodied, fruit-driven wine with a big creamy texture, at a much more reasonable price. Additionally, Gru-Vee is never heavily oaked and, as a member of the Traminer cépage, has an enticing spiciness that makes it perhaps the most versatile food wine in the world. Sommeliers have adopted this “new” wine as the first recommendation to customers who are looking for the alternative to Chardonnay. Consumers are thrilled with the discovery! Our Gruner Veltliner from the more than 200 year old Huber Estate in the Traisental region will serve as an excellent introduction to this ancient wine. The wine has a green–yellow hue with complex aromatics reminiscent of apple, pear, grapefruit, honeydew, honeysuckle, banana, and peach. The flavors echo the melon, apple, citrus and peach aromas. The medium-bodied wine shows just a hint of sweetness to balance the natural acidity. The finish lingers pleasantly. This 16 liter kit makes 6 gallons (30 bottles) of wine. All of the ingredients you will need are included in the kit and are pre-measured along with fool-proof directions.

ABOUT CELLAR CRAFT SHOWCASE: Many of these wine kits stand apart from our other offerings and have been deemed worthy of Showcase designation. Their distinction may come from breakthrough technology, such as exclusive Crushed Grape Packs; unique regional wines or any wine which we believe reflects a new level of excellence or discovery for the wine hobbyist. The level of excellence may require extra processing steps and, while designed to be bottle-ready in as little as 6 weeks, may require lengthier cellaring time to show at their peak.

SPECIAL SAVINGS: Order 2 or more juices in any brand, any combination, at the same time and receive a 10% discount on both of them! Your discount will automatically be applied when the second juice is ordered.
