Location & harvest
The "Göttweiger Berg“ – as it has been known since 1083 A.D. –
strongly benefits from the different microclimatic conditions. Here,
the vegetation breathes the cool, soft and spicy air from the
Dunkelsteiner Woods as well as the warm Pannonian air – all balanced
with the natural humidity of the Danube region. There also are several
geological differences, ranging from gravel and sand, and loess and
loam, to weathered primary rock – all of which bring, along with the
various grape varieties, a plethora of characteristics to the wines. This
is an ideal site for Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. The Göttweiger Berg
yields medium-bodied wines with in average of 12,5% vol. alcohol.
They are matured in steel tanks.
Juicy yellow apple aromas and fine tobacco nuances. The palate shows
structure and finesse, with green apple and a mineral undertone. Solid
alcohol content: 12,5%
residual sugar: 1,2g (dry)
Ageing potential: This wine could be enjoyed within three years of the harvest - but the
potential actually increases after 4-6 years.
Serving temperature: 9 – 11 ° Celsius
Food recommendation: Grüner Veltliner is ideal for the Austrian kitchen, and goes
wonderfully with spicy Far Eastern cuisine as well. We recommend
this wine especially for starters, baked foods and Asian dishes.
