Christian Kerschbaumer’s Garlider Estate is in Feldthurns,in the Isarco river valley. He is a “Biologic” producer. It is a natural process and he wants the vines and the soil to do the talking. In his wines you really can feel the sun shining on the vines, and the stones giving a distinct character. This Grüner Veltliner is amazing. The aromas burst from the glass, full of white pepper and hints of alpine flowers. On the palate the wine has a density and weight, and supple richness that warms your mouth. The finish is stunning, powerful and long. This wine can easily age another six to eight years but it is so tasty now it’s hard to imagine waiting. Grüner Veltliner is one of the most versatile wines. It can accompany fish, poultry, pasta, pork or veal. This wine has a vino-lock, a glass plug in the end, my favorite closure. Don’t use a corkscrew!
