Gruner Veltiner is extremely versatile and able to produce young, sparkling and long-aged wines. The leaves on the vine are five-lobed, and the bunches are long but compact, with deep green grapes that ripen mid-late October. The steep, Rhine-like vineyards of the Danube, west of Vienna produce very pure, minerally Grüner Veltliner intended for laying down. By contrast, in the plains, citrus and peach flavours are more apparent, with spicy notes of pepper and sometimes tobacco.
