As what might be considered Meinklang's 'house white' this blend of Gruner Veltliner, Welschriesling and Muscat far surpasses the constraints of that moniker in both quality and distinctiveness. Fermented with native yeasts and raised in steel tanks on the lees, the wine glows with aromas and flavors of pear, white peach, lime rind and white flowers. Its light-to-medium body and super-crisp acidity make for ideal summer drinking - a great pairing with fresh veggies and grilled chicken. Pure sunshine in this bottle.
