This Gruner is like the white wine counterpart to Fleurie. 11.5% abv, yet bone dry. White floral notes, lime zest and grapefruit, white pepper, and tarragon, with an acid driven, salty stone finish that adds enough tension and minerality to make this standout.

It’s worth noting Bernhard Ott is so Biodynamic he used enough manure that the EU contacted him; “they didn’t think it was possible to use 100,000 Euros worth of manure – they thought there was some accounting mistake.”

Great QPR for the basic Ott Gruner. Grapefruit, lychee, flowers and pink peppercorns. Chinese take out night would be greatly enhanced with one of these on hand.

Lean and crisp with lemon peel and grapefruit. Great minerality. A great value from an honest winemaker.

From the homeland of biodynamics, Austrian winemaker Bernard Ott is a true icon. He practices biodynamics in both the vineyard and winery, producing wines that range from meticulous to mischeivous. This particular cuvée is the former, with pristine freshness, clarity and mouth-watering acidity. A definite Grüner-lover's must try.

Mmmm. Cantaloupe and freshness. A new go-to, affordable gem.

Stones, lush fruit, bracing natural acidity. Slightly, nicely tannic. Value alert at $23

Grapefruit sorbet, acacia, lemon blossom, and white pepper, lemongrass, cumin, honeysuckle. Juicy acidity, pithy citrus, a little spice. Layers of deliciousness.
