Wine Description

This Gruener Veltliner grows on our Mollandser site called Steinleithen. The soil there is very stony (Gneiss) which gives the wine its mineral taste. The vineyard is 40 years old and located in the southern part of Mollands with a beautiful view to Schoenberg – the next village in the valley of Kamptal – in about 340m above sea level. The grapes are harvested very late (mid october) and in full ripe condition. The Gruener Veltliener Urgestein Natural consists 100% of Gruener Veltliner grapes. 10% were fermented (6 weeks on the skin, destemmed but still with 10% stems 90% whole berries) and ripend in used oak barrel. The other 90% were fermented spontanously in a steel tank. The wine ripend on the yeasts for one year before it got bottled without fining, without filtration and only a little bit sulphur addition before botteling. Therefore, the Urgestein Natural is more spicy, creamy and full of mineral taste with a long adstringend finish. Try it with good food.
