Grüner Veltliner is the most important indigenous grape variety in Austria. As an origin-typical DAC wine, this variety holds special rank in several wine-growing regions especially in Niederösterreich where this wine is from.
This wine was produced by Weingut Allram whose estate is situated in the heart of the wine growing area Kamptal in the picturesque location, Straß im Straßertale. The winery belongs to growers who have succeeded in establishing themselves at the top of Austrian viniculture through decades of consistently high quality work.
This "own label" wine is equivalent to the Grüner Veltliner Strassertaler and reflects a cross section of the major vineyards of Straß. Here primarily slate, gravel and loss soil with some elements of lime stone produce a dignified Veltliner of the Straßertal valley who shows the great potential of its soils.
Grapes were hand picked and after a short maceration period were vinified with temperature-controlled fermentation at 19°C, before maturation on fine lees prior to bottling
The colour is pale straw and shows a delicate peppery aroma with refreshing citrus notes on the palate, spicy, charming and light, clear pepperyness.
This wine is the quintessence of a typical Grüner Veltliner of the Kamptal. Stock acquired from a bankruptcy and sold with a back label only.
Under the winemakers label this wine is around £13 - The identical wine with just a back label was £7.25 - now just £5.95 to clear the last few bottles.
