Grüner Veltliner Vienna Hills 2016

The Grüner Veltliner grapes for this wine mainly come from sites of the Wiener Bisamberg with a smaller portion coming from sites of the Nussberg. After being harvested meticulously by hand the grapes from the different parcels 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 lees for a moderate length of time, the individual parts were blended together and bottled.

Tasting Notes

Light green-yellow in color, this wine shines with a soft, balanced Veltliner nose. It displays fresh fruit aromas combined with mineral undertones. On the palate, this wine is light and crispy with a vibrant acidity structure. Already as a young wine, this Grüner Veltliner is so pleasant with its spicy and fresh style. 

Food Pairing

Pairs well with light summer dishes, salads, fish and other seafood.
