More about this wine

Why choose this
Crisp and all that a "North of the Danube" Grüner Veltliner should be.

The wine estate Waldschütz is located in Elsarn at the southern slope of the Manhartsberg.

The region is dominated by a high-lying area known as the Heiligenstein, documented as long ago as 1280 as “Hellerstein”, or Hell Rock, because of the burning sun it enjoys which is perfect for ripening grapes. Daytime sun warms the hillsides while at night the vineyards are cooled by the river and fresh breezes from the north. White grape varieties develop a spicy aroma, a fine acidity and a crystal-clear mineral character. Reds develop fine berry tones with delicate fruit and are among Austria’s most elegant.
