A rarer, crisper, dryer Veltliner.
We love showcasing rare indigenous mountain grapes!

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

The Frühroter Veltliner grows on an extraordinarily barren location. The vineyard nestles in a forest, with the vines, planted in 1995, thriving on  the foothills of the Manhartsberg. In the Steinfeld, an area of primordial rock reaches far below the surface and right down to deep layers of soil. In search of water and nutrients the vines spread their roots deep into the soil layers below with the result that the wine is given its very own fruit and mineral vivacity.
