Grüner Veltliner Heideboden 2012Current Wines | Wines from 2012
The Grüner Veltliner is without doubt the most famous Austrian grape variety. While beeing cultivated for centuries already, skillful vinyardists and winemakers nowaday prove over and over again that its wines can be easily measured against 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.
The Grüner Veltliner Heideboden shows a juvenile bright yellow colour. The nose is reminiscent of green apples as well as it is spicy. On the palate there are hints of pepper and it has a well balanced harmonic overall appearance.
The wine lends itself as a companion for cold hors d’oeuvre and of course for typical Austrian down-home fare but it is just as brilliant to vegetables or fish dishes.
Best to drink within two years after the harvest.
