Region: Kremstal, Austria
Zöhrer Ried Wachtberg Kremstal DAC Reserve Grüner Veltliner 2017
From the top of this high hill the citizens of Krems were warned of approaching enemies during historical times (Wachtberg can be roughly translated as “Lookout Mountain”). The extensive southeast-facing terraces of the Wachtberg vineyard site reach up to 400 meters above sea level. The soil is calcareous with a high silt content. The bedrock consists of gneiss with minor schist and is covered by extensive deposits of loess.
An extraordinary wine with fine aroma of fresh Golden Delicious apples, delicate pear, a pleasant herbal spice, with juicy, ripe honeydew melon balanced with fine acidity. Great length and potential for aging.
Try with light meat, fish and seafood or asparagus dishes.
