Galen Glen Winery 2017 "Vinology" Grüner Veltliner
Made from grapes grown in the second oldest grüner planting in the United States, this brisk, varietally correct wine features aromas of grapefruit, pineapple and passionfruit with a sweet minty/herbal note.
On a brisk, focused palate, typical white pepper qualities emerge, bringing subtle complexity to grapefruit and tropical fruit flavors. Crunchy, chalky acidity frames the fruit nicely and cuts through a subtle bit of creaminess on the mid-palate. The finish is long and honey-tinged. A great value and one of the iconic wines of the East Coast.
