Gruner Veltliner is every bit as Austrian as the Blue Danube waltz!
The majority of the Gruner Veltliner grapes for this dry white were grown on the steep, rocky terraces of Rohrendorf in Kremstal and the surrounding area. The löss soil on these steep terraces is rich in lime and sediments from the last ice age, and can be up to 35 metres thick! Vines are trained on high trellises, with grapes organically produced and hand harvested. Grapes are de-stemmed and crushed and the must left to settle for 3-4 hours before pressing. Fermented and aged in stainless steel.
Delicate aromas of pear, kiwi, apricot and white spice. On the palate stone fruit flavours and white pepper lead to a gently textured, mineral and citrus finish.
Match with white fish or chicken salad.
