What we drank last night: Hajszan Gruner Veltliner 2008

The other day we decided to crack a bottle of the Hajszan Gruner Veltliner 2008 Nussberg from Vienna. The aromatic grape varietal showed its colors here. Spicy white pepper and exotic fruits. Medium in bodied and structured with a lingering finish.

I happened to be eating a combination of steamed vegetables for lunch that day and the wine was a nice pairing for that… Gruner’s always good for a little vegetable pairing.

The Hajszan winery follow a biodynamic approach focusing on quality over quantity. The winery says that this approach really helps to accentuate the terroir’s influence on the wine. The soils are nourished with animal and plant matter as fertilizer.

The Viennese style of Gruner is always a crowd pleaser. Fruity with a bit of spice, nice and structured through and through – perfect for food.
