This classic example of Austria’s star grape,
Grüner Veltliner, comes from Kamptal, a top
spot for the variety.
What You Need To Know
The Grüner Veltliner grape, much
loved by sommeliers for its food pairing versatility, grows best in
the stony, sun-warmed terraces of Wachau and Kamptal, Austria’s
preeminent wine districts. Karl and Birgitta Steininger own 86
acres outside the small Kamptal town of Langelois. They save
their best Grüner Veltliner vines to make this reserve bottling—
leaving the grapes to ripen longer, then fermenting their juice until
dry. The resulting “Grand Grü” (a play on the French grand cru) is
a wine with dense, focused flavors and terrific complexity.
