2020 MANTLERHOF – GRUNER VELTLINER WEITGASSE (750ML)
ORIGIN | Austria
GRAPE VARIETAL | Gruner Veltliner
TASTING NOTES | This Gruner Veltliner is full of apple peel, hazelnuts, tree resin and lemon aromas, with down-to-earth flavours of earthy minerality, and again apples and pear skin. It has a soft, smooth texture, light tannins and a refreshing finish.
WINEMAKER NOTES | Sepp Mantler is an institution in Austria and one of the most respected winemakers within his native Kremstal. The estate is based in a 16th Century monastery and has been in the family for over 200 years – his wife’s great, great, great grandfather first planting vineyards in 1805.
The 14 hectares of vineyards of steep, terraced vineyards are on prime loess soils and farmed organically – a conscious decision by Sepp to ensure his wines are a true representation of the climate and soil of the Kremstal. He concentrates on traditional Austrian varieties Roter-Veltliner and Gruner-Veltliner, but his Rieslings (especially the sweet ones) are also stunning.
PAIRING NOTES | Pork, Vegetarian dishes, Poultry, Lean Fish, Cured Meat, or pair with kicking your feet up to unwind!
