Sorry, sold out
Our Notes: The mineral rich “Hoher Rain” comes from the sandy, loamy, south-east facing vineyard it is named for. At the top of the hill outside the village of Oberfucha, “hoher” means “top” in German. These well drained soils rich with organic matter lend both minerality and intensity to this Grüner Veltliner. On the palate, slate and clay notes are accented with white pepper and exotic ripe fruit. High toned but playful, lush but with serious cut.

For pairing, take the classic asparagus route, or instead try it with well seasoned braised pork or North African spiced dishes featuring caraway and cumin. This is a wine that will continually evolve in either the glass during a meal or well stored in the bottle.
