No, this is not a blend of grüner veltliner and sylvaner; “grüner sylvaner” is the German name for silvaner - or sylvaner, depending on where you’re growing it and how you like to organize your vowels. Battenfield-Spannier are a certified biodynamic producer in the Rheinhessen (western Germany), where grüner sylvaner is a local specialty. Indigenous fermentation and brief aging are in stainless steel. Fresh-cut hay, herbs, wet stones, and a whiff of smoke. 12.5% alcohol. It’s a fine aperitif for those who love acidity, and a great partner to asparagus and other green things.
