Grüner Veltliner Ried Eichbühel Kremstal Reserve 2018
Origin and Terroir
The grapes originate from the single vineyard Eichbühel, which is our highest vineyard site 330 m above sea level. The cooler climate and the chalky soil support the fruity development of Grüner Veltliner and enable the grape to mature longer on the vine.
After a selection in the vineyard only the best grapes were harvested. These fully matured, flavor intense grapes were gentle processed after a short maceration time. The fermentation was completed temperature-controlled steel tanks. At the end of the fermentation the wine was racked into 500l oak barrels where it was allowed to mature on its fine lees.
Medium yellow-green in the glass, gentle tobacco notes in the nose, the palate reveals elegance and flavor of honeydew, wild herbs, black pepper and delicate honey notes; quite substantial, a convincingly long mineral and exciting finish.
