Grüner Veltliner Heideboden 2009

Current Wines | Wines from 2009


A bottle of Grüner Veltliner Heideboden

The Grüner Veltliner is without doubt the most famous Austrian grape variety. While it did not have the best reputation in the past, skillful vinyardists and winemakers nowaday prove again and again that its wines can be well compared to the worlds very best whites. Grüner Veltliner wines from Lake Neusiedl are normally very aromatic and fruity with an elegant bouquet as well as 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 2009 impresses with a noble bouquet, pleasurable peppery tones and a reminiscence of green apples. It is light, spicy on the palate, offering a soft finish.

Food suggestion

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

Ageing potential

Best to drink within 2 years after the harvest.
