Grüner Veltliner Ried Alte Point 2019
Origin and Terroir
The grapes originate from our sustainable managed vineyards site Alte Point in the Wachau. This single vineyard is located in the south-eastern part of the Wachau wine region between the Roman village of Mautern and the Göttweig Abbey. This location´s warm climate and heat-preserving Danube gravel layer promotes early maturation of the grapes and produces spicy wines with depth and finesse.
Only fully matured grapes were harvested and gentle processed. First fining to the must was completed before a temperature-controlled fermentation took place in steel tanks. The wine was racked from the tank and allowed to develop its full aroma on the fine lees for a short period before being bottled.
Light green-yellow in the glass, opens up in the nose with a wide range of different fruit aromas including grapefruit but also tones of garden herbs and excellent minerals. The palate is spoiled by a beautiful distinction and finesse, delicate nuances of apples and pears in the finish.
