As with most of Harald Breitenfelder’s white wines, this is a wine that packs quite a punch – in a very good way. If you are looking for a Grüner Veltliner that typifies a Weinviertel DAC, then this is it.



Tasting Notes

Ben says:-

The nose is lovely with masses of green fruit, apples and melon dominate.

In the mouth the explosion of flavour and acidity are amazing. It instantly reminded me of a home-made Bramley apple purée setting my saliva glands to DEFCON 1 in a fantastic mouthful of joy.

The impact is wonderful and the flavours and mouth-wateringness go on for a very long time.

Enjoy every sip and relish the experience for as long as possible. You will thank me if you do.
