Nico & Laura Rheinhessen Gruner Veltliner 250ml Can - Rumford, RI
This Grüner Veltliner is fresh and vibrant with flavors of green pear, lime, grapefruit and white pepper with a clean, mineral finish that makes it the perfect alternative to Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless with no oak influence.
Nico and Laura Espenschied farm their sustainable vineyards with unbelievable passion and care. The family has been making wine in this village and on these soils for 8 generations, with the 9th generation having fun growing-up and playing in the beautiful hillside vineyards and on the old sand stones that make up the courtyard of their house and the attached winery. They apply principles of organic and even biodynamic farming and have a deep connection to the land and vines they tend. In the cellar, they employ minimal intervention and natural winemaking to produce wines with finesse and balance.
