FAQs about Grüner Veltliner

While not picky
about their soil, Grüner grapes thrive best in löss (silt
or clay soil) or loam soil that has deep water and nutrient
retention. Grüner grapes grown on the western bank of the Danube
with its low soil levels and gravelly soil have a more pronounced
mineral taste as the wine ages.

Wines like Dry Riesling, Picpoul, Grenache Blanc, Muscadet are
acceptable substitutes for this wine. Vermentino, Sauvignon Blanc,
Pinot Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Colombard, and Gros Manseng are also
substitutes. These pair with dishes like the ones that pair with
Grüner Veltliner wine.

Storing Grüner
Veltliner correctly is essential to keeping its subtle citrusy and
earthy taste. Choose the correct bottle to preserve your wine. Pick
bottles with screw caps, not corks. While corks may seem more
elegant, bottles with cork stoppers can lead to quick deterioration
and waste of your wine purchase. A cork bark condition called cork
taint can ruin wines. In cork taint, a benzene called
2,4,6-trichloroanisole (TCA) develops from chemical interactions with
fungus and pesticides in the cork bark. Cork taint causes wine to
taste unpleasant, like the smell of a musty basement. You should
store Grüner Veltliner in a cool place, avoid moving the wine
unless necessary and keep wine in a dark area such as a basement or
cellar. Don't, however, store this or other wines in an ordinary
refrigerator. Standard refrigerators are too cold for wines. If you
must refrigerate your wine, use a wine refrigerator.
