RD Winery Fifth Moon Grüner Veltliner 2019
|Region||California, Central Coast, Edna Valley|
Our Fifth Moon Grüner Veltliner is a California twist on an old-world classic. All of the spice and freshness you would expect from a traditional Grüner, but with a juicer, riper profile that lets you know you are in California.
Ripe peach, white nectarine, lime blossoms, orchard fruit and subtle notes of grain lead into a lean yet unctuous mid-palate full of minerals and sandy loam. Lingering notes of wasabi and Kaffir lime finish clean, making for a complex wine that is provocative without the pretension.
Crisp aromas of Pink Lady apple slices and Mandarin peel show a touch of green herbs while remaining clean on the nose. The palate is zesty and fresh, showing firm kiwi and crisp lime flavors.
