Frühroters Veltliner 2016 75cl cl

This varietal might have Veltliner in its name but like its parent Röter Veltliner its not related to Grüner Veltliner!

Frühroter Veltliner most probably originated in Gumpoldskirchen. It ripens early, hence being called Frührot (early red) and is therefore in contrast to the Zierfandler (late red).

Part of the entry level Waldschütz Hof or Estate series with fruit coming from across both Kamptal and Wagram under the Niederösterreich regional classification.

Attractive almond and biscuit accents in the nose, freshly baked bread on the palate which leaves you thinking of mangoes.

When youthful this is a summer wine - with a few years it becomes a superbly flexible white.

Tasting Notes

Ben says of the 2016 (February 2018): Golden straw in colour, this is a wine that invites tasting! On the nose there is green apple, peach, a hint of spiciness and a little faux-sweetness. This leads to similar flavours in the mouth with the addition of some orangey citrus. A lovely aperitif wine from a local grape.

Flo says of the 2016 (feb 2018): An an easy drinking explosion of peach combined with notes of mangosteen and an acidity that brings this wine together into a beauitfully balanced package
