2021 Gruner Veltliner
On September 2nd, 2021, we harvested our inaugural crop of Grüner Veltliner from our estate, La Belle Promenade Vineyard. This Austrian flagship was planted by virtue of our curiosity to cultivate and crafta unique expression of the varietal in our Willamette Valley.
Debuting in the Flâneur Wines portfolio for the first time is the 2021 La Belle Promenade Grüner Veltliner. A bouquet of honeycomb, Saturday morning fresh cut grass, lemon verbena, and ripe yellow pear leave us intrigued to taste. Flavors are abundant showcasing classic lemon, grapefruit, with limoncello, and golden hay. A touch of salinity plays with the plush and resinous texture. Refreshing acidity makes this wine the perfect spring and summer selection.
