Region USA, Oregon
Grape Grüner Veltliner
Style Blueberries, Pepper, Black olive
Bottle Size 75cl
Off the beaten track Grüner from kind to the earth producer's Illahe - vineyards are horse ploughed and additions are kept to a minimum.
A relatively light body but chunky and dense aromas of lime inflicted stone fruit, a little white pepper; and herbs are drawn from time in acacia barrels.
A good alternative to the standard "riesling with asian flavours", but also enough complexity to keep you entertained if drinking it on its own.
