Pronounced Grooner (rhymes with spooner!) Velt-leener (rhymes with cleaner),and also more easily known simply as ‘Grüner’, this is a lean, fresh wine from the Dunántúl region in Hungary.

If you’re looking to break out from your Sauvignon Blanc rut, then Grüner Veltliner could be the grape for you – it’s crisp, dry and loaded with mouth-watering citrussy flavours.

It’s also really food-friendly and goes brilliantly with Asian food like sushi and spicy Thai dishes.
