Ried Zöbinger Grub
Grüner Veltliner Kamptal DAC 2022
Yield: 40 hl per hectare
Harvest Date: October 23rd, at 19.5° KMW.
Location and single-vineyard description: A kettle-shaped vineyard located between Heiligenstein and Gaisberg, sheltered from three sides and open to the southwest. 20,000 years ago, this protected site served mammoth and reindeer hunters as a welcoming habitat. The calcareous soil is composed of loess with the consistency of loamy-sandy silt, with locally embedded veins of gravel and slack coal – thus an ideal terroir for fine Grüner Veltliner.
Vinification: Maceration, fermentation and maturation took place in large and small oak barrels. It rested for 6 months on its leavenings before being bottled in August.
Wine analysis: 13.0 % vol. alcohol, 5.5 ‰ acidity, 4.8 g/l residual sugar
Tasting notes: Inviting bouquet of yellow apples, candid oranges, honey & melon. Elegant and complex on the pallet. Dense, long finish with hints of pineapple and playful mineral notes. Multy layered food companion with many years of aging potential.
