Weinhof Waldschutz, Gruner Veltliner Fels am Wagram 2017
Anton & Ralph Waldschutz
The wine is a golden yellow delight which is beautiful to look at in the glass. Give it a swirl and you will see very strong ‘legs’ which indicate a very extract-rich wine. On the nose the smell of this wine is reminiscent of dried wild herbs, however try smelling a second time and you will find a variation of dark spices in conjunction with exotic aromas of mango and papaya. On the palate it is full, round and rich giving anticipated Veltliner spiciness followed by further exotic notes. The finish is gloriously long.
The Vineyards are situated in the Wagram in the Kamptal Valley composed of loess soil. The grapes are hand picked and sorted before fermentation in inert vessels. the wine is then aged on lees for 6 months with battonage being carried out to increase texture. It is bottled shortly before release.
Anton and Ralph run this inspiring vineyard and truly believe in their terroir. In their own words: "The soil carries its history into the wine cellar. At our winery we harmoniously blend the typical terroir characteristics of two wine-growing regions: the mineral spice of the primary rock, with the fine fruit and the fragrant nuances of the loess soil. What is more, our vineyards are situated on slopes blessed with intensive sunshine, both in the rocky Wagram and in Obernholz in the Kamptal valley."
