Beautifully biting, it offers charming minerality, citrus and spice notes. This wine has four different labels. Illustrations will therefore vary.

Tasting Notes

This is gorgeous, fresh, vibrant and broad Grüner Veltliner that comes from the Kremstal region in Austria. It is a fresh and bright, mouth-watering style of Grüner that begins to show more culinary herbal characteristics so associated with this variety. It's a superb all-rounder of a white that is delicious with a very wide range of cuisine.

History 

The brainchild of Michael Malat, the grapes for "Crazy Creatures" are grown in the small Austrian village of Palt, in the wine-growing region of Kremstal. The traditional Malat winery has been making wines in the region since 1722.

Varietal

The flagship grape of Austria, Grüner Veltliner is a natural cross of Traminer and St. Georgen.  Grüner accounts for almost 30% of all grapes planted with around 13,500 hectares under vine in the country.  The Austrian native has become an international sensation amongst sommeliers worldwide as the perfect food wine due to its high acidity.  In Austria it is prized for the easy drinking wine it produces but can also wow the palate with complexity in the right winemaker’s hands.  The typical flavor profile is often described as displaying elements of green apple with an unmistakable white pepper spiciness.
