Grüner Veltliner, Weinviertel DAC

You want winemaking history? How about 10 generations of single estate, Frank family goodness! In Austria’s Niederösterreich, Harald and Johanna Frank see themselves as equal parts winemakers and caretakers of this legacy. Clean, nuanced, and just a bit spicy, the Frank family’s Weinviertel Gruner is pitch-perfect thanks to low yields, loess soils, and 40+ year-old vines. It’s an exquisitely vertical wine, underpinned with heaping spoonfuls of crushed rock. A gorgeous, streamlined experience.

2019 review: "Exuberant notes of peardrop on the nose are accompanied by green hints of boxwood and passion fruit. The palate follows this with proper zing and freshness, twirling the passion fruit and lime zest notes into a refreshing, juicy, moreish vortex."
