More about

This is quite possibly the finest Grüner Veltliner that you will ever taste! In it's youth it can appear remarkably open. However, it will age extremely well, at least 20 years, and in doing so will develop great depth of flavour. 

It is made from the very best selections of Grüner Veltliner grapes from each of the estate vineyards, all of which are of the highest quality in their own right. Generally, smaller grapes are used, these having greater concentration of flavour. As the wine comes from a mix of sites there is a good mix of fruit and mineral characteristics.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The nose is powerful with racy limey notes. The palate is immensely complex with lush fruit including pears and citrus fruit. A typical Grüner Veltliner spiciness, extremely well balanced residual sweetness and subtle minerality.
