Grüner Veltliner Ried Gottschelle Kremstal 2018
Origin and Terroir
The grapes originate from the single vineyard “Gottschelle”. First mentioned as “Gotschali” in 1341, it is situated at the foot of the Göttweiger Berg. The south-facing old Danube terrace has a mighty loess layer with high proportions of gneiss and granite in the subsoil. The vines of this vineyards are approximately 50 years old and still produce very characteristic Veltliner grapes. The combination of the well-suited soil and the micro climate contribute well to the development of this Grüner Veltliner.
The perfectly matured Veltliner grapes were picked at the end of the harvest and were gently processed. The steel tank fermentation was completed in a temperature-controlled environment. By the middle of January the wine was racked and allowed to develop its full aroma on the fine lees before being bottled.
Medium yellow-green in the glass, yellow apples in the nose, the palate reveals elegance and flavor of tropical fruits, wild herbs, black pepper and delicate honey notes; quite substantial, a convincingly long mineral and spicy finish.
