Ried Strasser Wechselberg

Grüner Veltliner Kamptal DAC 2018

Yield: 45 hl per hectare

Harvest Date: August 28th, at 18.5° KMW.

Location and single-vineyard description: The mighty Wechselberg rises on the eastern side of the Strassertal, facing to the south. Its weathered soils take their origin in the crystalline of the Bohemian Mass and crystalline slate. Its altitude creates cool nights to alternate with hot summer days. This ensures the development of excellent aromas and flavors in the grapes.

Vinification: Only sound fruit was used for this wine. The grapes were immediately pressed without maceration and subsequently preclarified for 24 hours. The must was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks.

Weinanalyse: 12.5 % vol. alcohol, 5.9 ‰ acidity, 2.2 g/l residual sugar

Tasting notes: Intense straw-yellow; a fine-scented classic with vegetal spice, asparagus, minty-peppery coolness, ripe pomaceous fruit; on the palate, this flows smoothly along, displaying subtle minerality with a smoky undertone, well supported by its acidity and perfectly balanced; highly reflecting the region. Goes beautifully with fish and spicy dishes.
