Gruener Veltliner BIG BOTTLE 2019
The name says it all: Our Grüner Veltliner BIG BOTTLE is only available as a 1.5 lt. Magnum. A perfect format for larger gatherings in a relaxed atmosphere (or to loosen up the atmosphere). This elegant Gruener Veltliner is predominantly grown on limy, partly clayey, loess and loam soils, which covers an area that stretches from the southeast of Langenlois to its higher lying western plateau. Bottled after over 6 months on the lees, it is characterized by pithy fruit and spicy minerality, which unmistakably reflect its origin.
