Wiener Grüner Veltliner, 2017


750 ml

Varietal: Grüner Veltliner

Tasting Notes:

This wine shines with a soft, balanced Veltliner nose. It's fragrant, fresh and yields a very elegant palate. It's smooth and very approachable with a vibrant acidity structure. Already as a young wine, this Grüner Veltliner is so pleasant with its spicy and fresh style. And it makes an ideal companion for classic Austrian dishes.

“Crushed fern and sage, lemon and ripe pear make for an intriguing nose. The palate is juicy, guided on the slender light body by bright lemon freshness. The green savory note reappears on the dry finish.”– Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast

The grapes for the Wiener Grüner Veltliner are grown in the vineyards of the Wiener Bisamberg (65%) and the Nussberg (35%). The Bisamberg soil is comprised of light, sandy loess over solid limestone, and is very calcareous. The Nussberg consists mainly of weathered shell-limestone – also over massive limestone.

The grapes from each parcel for the Wiener Grüner Veltliner underwent a short maceration period and were then carefully pressed. The pre-clarified must was fermented at cool temperatures in steel tanks, then matured to accentuate the racy, fruity character as best as possible. After ageing on the fine lees for a moderate length of time, the individual parts were blended together and bottled in Winter.
