Wine Details

Uplifted apple and mineral aromas, turning to richer notes of lychee, prickly pear, sweet blossom, and a white pepper note that blooms with a bit of air. Lemon-lime coated rock, nectarine and white pepper blast on the palate. Delicious.

Cam Confidential

Franz Leth’s 80-acre estate, just west of Vienna along the Danube River, is the source of some fantastic Grüner values. Their “Steinagrund” bottling (basically “stone ground”) is sourced from terraced hillsides heavy with ancient gravelly riverbed covered with loess (a German word indicating windblown clay and calcareous silt, pronounced something like “luss”). Deeper loess soils, retaining more water and nutrients, produce broad shouldered, creamier, and fruitier Grüners than, say, the laser-focused wines of the Wachau and Kamptal that we offered a few months ago.

This wine was a wonderful surprise. I wish I had bought more than one bottle!

I never thought a Gruner would be my house wine but there you go. Really lovely acidity with dry and floral notes that make every sip meaningful.

This one isn't at all a bad wine, and for the price, it's worth exploring. It doesn't really have the structure or acidity that I expect from a Gruner and just tasted flat to me. Very drinkable, but not my favorite.

I bought the previous three Gruners from Cam. They were all good, but this one is amazing! Incredible fruit, delicious lemon and honey. Lovely aromas. Highly recommend this.
