2017 Schloss Maissau Gruner Veltliner "Biodynamic" Weinviertel DAC, Austria
From the Importer (Bliss Imports - the "Pickiest Importer in the State"PROFILE
Green apple, arugula, and white pepper. Fresh and crisp. Classic Weinviertel cold climate style wine. The cold climate influences the freshness and gives an elegant and minerally interpretation of Grüner Veltliner.
Organic farming. Vineyards only need green cover. The grapes for this wine come from various vineyards - mainly granite soils with a bit of loess. The grapes are farmed organically, certified by ABG (Austria Bio Garantie).
The grapes were hand-picked in the end of September. The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 20° C with the addition of neutral yeast. After fermentation, the wine was left to rest on the fine lees for a total of 6 months before being bottled in spring.
