Habit Wine Company Gruner Veltliner 2018 - 750ml
Rancho Arroyo Perdido, Santa Ynez Valley
92 Points Vinous
The 2018 Grüner Veltliner Rancho Arroyo Perdido is one of the most expressive wines in Jeff Fisher's range. Orchard fruit, lime and exotic white flowers offer lovely depth and creaminess that provides a nice foil to the bright, taut style that Fisher favors. Sweet floral notes add perfume and character.
Jeff Fischer is the sole proprietor and winemaker for Habit which he founded in Los Olivos in 2008 after years of making wine in his garage in Los Angeles. His first vintage was just three barrels of the Red Blend. Habit now produces seven different wines from seven different vineyards in Santa Barbara County. Fischer’s wines focus on high acidity, lower alcohol, and strive to showcase varietal. All of the vineyards are sustainably or organically farmed and managed by the same Vineyard management team that he closely works with. The fruit is hand picked and hand sorted, and fermentations take place with both native and indigenous yeasts. Reductive winemaking techniques, punchdowns only by hand, and extended lees contact up until bottling keep the wines bright, fresh, and clean.

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
