Grooner 2015

Grooner

This young fresh perfectly vinified Gruner Veltliner is produced by master winemaker Meinhard Forstreiter. Fresh, dry, “zippy” with loads of healthy grape flavors and acidity that make one think instantly of green apples and citrus fruits, this lovely wine is a great aperitif and a great companion to all casual meals where being with friends and great conversation are the most important part of the meal. Drink up!

From Beverage Media Group: "Toni Silver says this space has been gaining steam over the last five years, particularly among consumers aged 21-40 and especially with women. Silver and her partner Monika Caha were early pioneers in the category, having created the GROONER brand in 2006 to target price-conscious retail consumers looking for a fun “new” drinking experience. This lighter style of Grüner Veltliner can easily sub in for Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Blanc at the same price point."

Additional Information

    A juicy white, with flavors of apricot, peach, thyme and white pepper. Vibrant and balanced in an easygoing way. Drink now.

    This "Grooner" is almost too easy to drink. Underripe pear, green apple, green bean and lemon pith. A very fun label; I can almost hear the lady yelling "Grooooner," in a Pee-wee Herman-like voice. Good value here.
