"Shake gently before drinking." Nikolaihof Winery

So what does this mean?

The masterminds at Nikolaihof have created "Zwickl," a gorgeous Grüner Veltliner bottled without filtration. You get - intentionally - two wines in one.

In the mood for a crisp, vibrant Grüner with a sumptuous briny undertone? Simply chill and pour without shaking.

In the mood for a more sophisticated Grüner and want to be wowed further? Chill and then shake gently allowing the beauty of the fine, cloudy lees to intermingle with the wine.

In the lees is where a magical transformation happens!

Shaking will create a creamy, textured wine with an ever so slightly cloudy hue and a burst of orchard fruit. A nose of pear, young apple, white peach and citrus notes will overwhelm your senses with added hints of parsnip, sea shells and wet stone. If you shake, the palate will provide a wonderful creamy mixture of citrus and white pepper. Regardless of how you choose to enjoy this wine, refreshing, crispy acidity appears on the lasting finish.

Perfect all summer long on the patio, enjoy this wine with those difficult-to-pair veggies like asparagus and artichoke, ginger dressing over a summer salad or alongside grilled shellfish.

This maybe one of the most delicious and unique offerings of 2018... there is no correct way to enjoy it.

Try both styles and you will be amazed!

Two wines in one. Shake gently and get a burst of orchard fruit. A nose of pear, young apple, white peach and citrus notes will overwhelm your senses with added hints of parsnip, sea shells and wet stones. If you shake, the palate will provide a wonderful creamy mixture of citrus and white pepper. Regardless of how you choose to enjoy this wine (shake or no shake) refreshing, crispy acidity appears on the lasting finish.
