Grüner Veltliner 2006

Current Wines | Wines from 2006


A bottle of Grüner Veltliner

The Grüner Veltliner is without doubt the most famous Austrian wine variety. While it did not have the best reputation in the past, the developments of the last two decades or so proved that it can be well compared to the worlds best white wines when skillfully treated in vinyard and wine-cellar. Grüner Veltliner wines from Lake Neusiedl are normally very aromatic and fruity with an elegant bouquet and full-bodied but not opulent. Depending on the vintage gracile fruitiness or more intense aromatics dominate, the wines are however always very palatable with a mild acidity.

Tasting notes

Our Grüner Veltliner 2006 impresses with its sublte bouquet with slightly peppery tones and a reminiscence of green apples. On the palate it is pleasurable structured and spicy with a soft finish.

Food suggestion

This wine lends itself as an accompanist for cold hors d’oeuvre and of course for typical Austrian down-home fare. It is also brilliant without any food for example as a fresh summer wine.

Ageing potential

Best to drink within 2 years after the harvest.
