From a cellar in Austria's premium Kremstal region, Danaris is fabulously crisp, minerally and complex. It's pure Grüner Veltliner, the grape behind some of Austria’s top whites and “the best kept secret of the wine world” (Wine & Spirits magazine).
Austrian wines are seldom seen outside the country’s borders – which is the only reason that Grüner Veltliner, the nation’s finest white grape, is not better known. This classic example is from a small winery in Krems, a town with eight centuries of winemaking tradition. Founded in 1938 by members of the local Wine Growers Guild, it lies at the heart of the Kremstal region, where clay and limestone soils “imbue the finest Veltliners with a density all of their own” (Jancis Robinson MW). Hand harvested, the grapes are gently pressed to extract only the most delicate flavours. A classic ‘GrüVe’ with spice and green apple fruit and a white pepper finish, Danaris is ideal with roast pork and apple sauce, grilled fish or spicy Asian cuisine.
"Gorgeous lime-filled white. Crisp, fresh, aromatic and refreshingly light but brilliantly memorable"
