We should call this wine "believe in yourself". When they bottled it they weren't so sure ... almost didn't bottle it. A year later it was selected amongst the best in Austria.

Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2016 Half bottle 37.5 cl cl
£23.68

Lovers of Grüner Veltliner (a very sensible group) will be in seventh heaven with this Eiswein. Far from sickly and cloying, this has perfect balance. The citrus acidity cuts through any possible syrupiness and elevates this wine above the norm. Chill it down for a fresh, clean delight. It goes wonderfully with pâté and as an accompaniment to sweet courses, but I prefer it as a course in its own right!

Vintage 2013: If you ever loved the taste of cinder toffee then this is the wine for you!

Vintage 2016: This is even cleaner and lighter than the 2013. The cinder toffee is gone and replaced with fantastic tropical and citrus fruits. The balance is, once again, perfect. I didn't think that they could better the 2013 but, with this wine, they have. It is altogether sophisticated and accessible and I would put it up against many far more expensive and well-known sweet wines.

Magic!

Tasting Notes

A great balance of sweetness and acidity which is the signature mark of a great dessert wine. Serve chilled 6-8C
