- Grüner Veltliner is Austria's signature grape, and my favourite grape variety. Thanks to the support of Angels I have the opportunity to share my passion with you.
- Angel funding helped me to buy grapes from the cool climate region Lower Austria. The vineyards around Vienna have differences in temperature between warm days and cool nights... the perfect conditions for producing complex wines like this one.
- With mouthwatering honeysuckle, ripe peach and fresh grapefruit notes, it's well-balanced, with a pleasant zing and delicate touch of pepperiness on the finish. I love it with Katsu curry.
WE'RE NOT SURE
- This is some of Herbert's most exclusive stuff made from Austrian Grüner Veltiner grapes, grown in a single vineyard the locals refer to as Ried Weintal. Grüner Veltiner is a real up-and-comer that already had wine critics peering over their spectacles, but combined with the unique conditions of Ried Weintal, Herbert has made something really rather exceptional.
- This wine focuses on celebrating the land it was grown from, using only the most natural processes to create the unvarnished style Herbert revels in. Nothing is added, nothing removed. Herbert lets the grapes do all the talking, working closely with the soil and the vines during the growing process, before taking a step back once the wine hits the cellar.
- With such a rich profile of flavours tightly curled into each bottle, this wine will enjoy a little time to unfurl and open up. Decant or crack open the bottle well before serving to reveal a golden, rounded mouthfeel, with bright flavours of quince, golden delicious apples, white pepper meeting ripe toasty notes of baked apples and pear.
WE'RE NOT SURE
- Herbert's an international Grüner Veltliner specialist, and has been making some of the biggest names in the business peer over their spectacles. So when we say he's made you some of the finest examples of Austrian Grüner Veltliner going, we're not pulling your leg.
- Grüner Veltliner is Austria's most popular grape and a bit like Herbert, is gaining some serious momentum in exclusive wine circles, both for its quality and its fine, distinctive flavours. Herbert lets the grapes do all the talking, working closely with the soil and the vines during the growing process, before taking a step back once the wine hits the cellar.
- The aim of the game is to keep the process as natural and sustainable as possible, a technique that results in this effortlessly complex wine. Full of character and citrusy crisp flavours of lemon, lime and vibrant nectarine - it's an utterly gripping sunshine sipper.
