Grüner Veltliner is a variety of white wine grape grown primarily in Austria, so it is considered to be Austria's signature white wine grape. The wine, made from it, has a reputation of being a particularly food-friendly. It is made into wines of many different styles - much is intended for drinking young in the Heuriger (bars serving new wine) of Vienna, a little is made into sparkling wine, but some is capable of long aging. The steep, Rhine-like vineyards of the Danube west of Vienna produce very pure, minerally Grüner Veltliners intended for laying down. Down in the plains, citrus and peach flavours are more apparent, with spicy notes of pepper and sometimes tobacco.
