Grüner Veltliner Kamptal DAC 2021, Weingut Waldschütz
As recommended in the Sunday Telegraph.
"It's hard to pick a favourite white wine, but this might just be it."
"I always take this Gruner to friends for dinner as it goes with everything and never fails to impress!"
Award winning Grüner made by the fourth generation of the same family, using natural wine growing techniques. Vines on slopes with optimum exposure and grapes go through three harvest rounds by hand, on cool days only. Gently pressed immediately after harvest. Fermentation and temperature control on lees. Bottled in February the following year in order to maintain the natural carbonic acid.
Pale gold, fresh apple and pear with white pepper nose. Lively, mineral, and full of peachy, citrus and grapefruit aromas with a herby, asparagus edge. Long, tropical fruit finish, again with fresh peppery, and light tobacco finish. An absolute gem.
