Description

Hofkellerei Ried Karlsberg Grüner Veltliner 2019 

Grüner Veltliner is an Austrian marquee player with a wide international following, because of its spicy & refreshing varietal character. The style of our Grüner Veltliner DAC is fresh & spicy, supported by an invigorating element of structure. 

Brilliant, bright green and silver-yellow reflexes, multifaceted bouquet of citrus blossoms, ripe pear, robinia and quince, followed by a fine and peppery spicyness, fresh and lively structure and playful fruitnotes on the long and animating finish.

The wines of the Reserve stem from older vines, grown in the deep loess soils of the single vineyards Karls- and Johannesberg, owned by the family for more than 600 years. They let you experience their origin, terroir, authenticity, precision and high value.

Entirely healthy, selected grapes with high acid structure, traditional vinification with certain oxygenation, partly in new 500 litre tonneaus, careful elevation on the fine lees in the century-old barrel cellars. Limited release.
