Grüner Veltliner Ried Thal 2020
Thal has a special value to us. It is inextricably linked to the history of our estate. It is our oldest and most traditional vineyard, where our family cultivated their first vines in 1856. The up to 80-year-old vines grow on a broadly terraced slope in the south of Langenlois, composed of quartz-sand and bright, calcerous loess. With delicate white and yellow fruit, cool spice and it's characteristic sandy minerality, the wine expresses the bright side of Gruener Veltliner.
[Ried = Austrian term for a single vineyard, it has the same meaning as "Lage"]Thal has a special value to us. It is inextricably linked to the history of our estate.

Vinification
Up to 80 years old vines. The grapes were selectively harvested by hand at the end of September and in early October. They were slightly crushed and macerated for some hours before we gently pressed them off with low pressure. Fermented in stainless-steel and matured for several months on the lees. Bottled at high atmospheric pressure during the waxing moon in August 2020.
Wine description
Attractive scent of white flowers, apples and melons, at the same time there is a herbal spice, some sage; yellow fruits on the palate, ripe apples, pears, also peppery, the sandy-chalky minerality comes through, fine extract sweetness, wonderfully ripe acidity, crystal clear. Great food companion!
