Cadre Band of Stones Gruner Veltliner 2019
EDNA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA
This wine leads with a salty citrus edge with a depth of jasmine and beautiful citrus driven tropical fruit. It has a harmonious balance of ripeness but a ton of verve and energy on the palate. A base of salty citrus, ginger and white pepper mingle with grapefruit that all lead to a savory, zesty finish drenched in minerality. This wine touches both sides of the Gruner spectrum, bright, fresh and vibrant along with texture and fullness that showcases what makes Edna Valley white wines unique.
