Galen Glen Vineyard 2017 Stone Cellar Gruner Veltliner
This is classic gruner from a classic East Coast gruner producer – Galen Glen in Andreas, Pennsylvania.
The beautiful nose shows fruit aromas of grapefruit, passionfruit and melon are sprinkled with slightly earthy white pepper. Great typicity for a variety that doesn't always show it in the East.
Focused and finessed, the palate is bone dry with an ethereal feel that still shows drive and purpose. Highlighted primarily by citrus and white pepper, the palate shows subtle notes of tropical fruit as well. The finish is long, dry and fresh. This is benchmark stuff – and a steal at $20.
