“Marked aroma of the variety with no shortage of fruit such as green apples & some peppery spice on the palate with abundance of freshness & harmony.”
Grapes are coming from the regional vineyards in Carnuntum with red gravel and nutritious loess with some gravel soils. Carnuntum is a wine region located in eastern Austria, near the city of Vienna. It is known for its long history of winemaking, even dating back to the time of the ancient Romans. The region takes its name from the ancient Roman city of Carnuntum, which was an important military and trading center during the Roman Empire.
Carnuntum is situated on the southern banks of the Danube River, where the climate is influenced by the river and the nearby Pannonian Plain. The region has a continental climate with hot summers and cold winters, and the vineyards are protected by the nearby Leitha Mountains, which help create a favorable microclimate for grape cultivation.
Grüner Veltliner is grown in one of the cooler places in this region, which benefit from the chilled winds of the nearby river Danube, especially during hot summers. This factor allows for the intensive aromatic & almost fizzy acidity in the grapes to be preserved. Specifically the red gravel soil (iron) brings minerality & the typical “pepper” to this Grüner Veltliner.
Manual harvest with only selected grapes between the 23rd & the 25th September, 2022. Whole cluster pressing before a slow fermentation with only natural yeasts which takes place in stainless steel tanks. Single racking to preserve the lees in the wine. Bottled unfined & unfiltered with a small addition of sulfur.
A beautiful image of its variety, this Grüner mingles apple, bright acidity and peppery undertones in just the right proportions. Pairs well with fried chicken and light fish and seafood, or go for Wiener Schnitzel or pork knuckle if a full-on Austrian experience is required. Ideal drinking temperature 8 °C. Turn bottle gently before opening. Certified organic.
