Gruner Veltliner

Grüner Veltliner is a white wine grape variety grown primarily in Austria, Slovakia and in the Czech Republic.  But recently, its taken root in Oregon on our Estate Vineyard site! Grüner has a reputation of being a particularly food-friendly wine; that’s how we fell in love with it upon tasting it in a high-end Thai restaurant in Chicago.  Spicy food loves this steely, acid-driven wine that can punch through to clense the palate and cool the heat.

We produce our gruner veltliner in stainless steel, and aim to capture the limey acidity, and pleasant phenolic bitterness typically displayed by this grape. In warm years, such as 2014, the wine can display a rich mid-palate, with pear and pear-skin qualities that jump from glass.

2016 Estate Grüner Veltliner

Raptor Ridge Estate Grüner Veltliner was planted in 2006 on our Chehalem Mountains Estate, Tuscowallame Vineyard. Situated at about 500 feet elevation on Laurelwood Soils that resemble the loess soils of Austria, the site is ideal for producing new- world Grüner. Always stainless-steel fermented, our Grüner is ideally crisp with primary fruit aroma and flavor.
