Grüner Veltliner

Grüner Veltliner is a bright, white varietal that is known for its presence in Austria, where over 75% of the world’s plantings are grown. Our Grüner grapes come from the southeastern block of our own Tuscowallame estate, on which only one acre is planted. 
This wine is perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day and is widely known to be an excellent pairing with spicy foods. 

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 an ideal place to grow new- world Grüner. In the vineyard, we see a difference in ripening between the top of the block versus the bottom, so for the first time we have decided to pick on two separate days. The fruit was sorted before using a gentle pressing program in which press fractions were separated out. The press fractions were fermented in barrel using Veltliner Yeast.
