Grüner Veltliner Maximum 2020
Many decades of growth have shaped vines of mighty, gnarly stature. They are deeply rooted in the loess and the metamorphic rock of our historic terraced vineyards. Our Maximum is sourced from a selection of these low-yielding old vines. Only the most valuable grapes of each vintage remain on the vine during the main picking season and are harvested very late, once they have reached their beautifully golden ripeness and full flavor potential. Before bottling, the wine spends at least two full winters on the lees. The result is a dense and mouth-filling Veltliner, bearing the unmistakable Hiedler signature.

From 50-85 year old vines. The grapes were selectively harvested by hand in various parts during late October and early November. Destemmed, slightly crushed and macerated for several hours. Gently pressed with low pressure. Fermented in big acacia cask and matured on the lees for over two winters. Bottled at high atmospheric pressure during the waxing moon in September 2022.
