About the wines:

Jules Taylor Gruner Veltliner 2017
For the heat of summer you NEED this wine! Like its Austrian cousins, this gruner is pure, porch-pounding refreshment. But it’s also beautifully complex! There’s juicy pear, white peaches, white strawberries, and dried flowers on the nose, leading to a burst of thirst-quenching acidity on the palate. Dry, light and bright, with zero oak, this is built for summer. Trust me. Jules Taylor is the queen of Marlborough and makes delicious, high value wines with sophistication. Most gruner veltliner comes from Austria and this has slightly juicier aromatics, in keeping with its new world terroir. Excellent intro to new world gruner. And if you love Austrian gruner, you’ve got to try this one…

Priest Ranch Grenache Blanc 2017
Lime zest and honeysuckle invite a CRISP, dry, mineral and structured sip. Refreshing + sophisticated. No oak. Aged entirely in stainless steel with a couple stirs of the lees, which adds body and roundness to the firm structure. Such outstanding wine for the price. Pair with ripe cheeses, spicy foods, and brats off the grill!
