Wine Urbanihof, Gruner Veltliner Wagram Classic, 2017
Wine pale straw yellow color.
The wine has a fresh, delicate, creamy, well-balanced taste with lively acidity, rather dense structure and juicy fruit tones that accompany a long aftertaste.
The wine has a multifaceted aroma, revealing shades of yellow apple, pineapple and grapefruit, surrounded by the nuances of herbs and wildflowers.
Quite versatile wine, perfectly combined with a wide range of dishes, but especially good - with grilled chicken and schnitzel.
