Fifth Moon Grüner Veltliner 2019

Fifth Moon Grüner Veltliner 2019

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. 

Tasting Notes

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.

Pairing

Weighty enough to push back against strong flavors like curries, vindaloo and Pho, yet delicate enough for sushi or even as an aperitif.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Edna Valley is located south of San Luis Obispo and north of Arroyo Grande. The valley runs east to west and is surrounded by volcanic mountains. Moderate sunshine combined with a cool maritime fog, provides an extended growing period in this AVA, resulting in complex flavors in the fruit.
Production Notes
We decided to let the vineyard speak for itself. Pressed whole cluster and fermented cold in stainless steel to help preserve the aromatics, the fermentation took two weeks and went to complete dryness. We blocked malolactic and left it on lees until bottling in the spring to preserve the vibrancy of the wine.
