2016 Wandern Monterey County Grüner Veltliner

This versatile Grüner Veltliner from California's Central Coast features a racy vein of acidity that's a trademark of the variety, as well as a propensity to pair with a wide array of foods. It delivers juicy, fleshy flavors of pineapple and lime that's buoyed by a hint of white pepper and mineral on the finish. Keep this chameleon of a wine handy all season long, as it will pair beautifully with everything from asparagus to spicy fish tacos.
