Gruner Veltliner Herrenholz 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

After careful grape selection by hand-picking and a further selection by a newly installed, fully automated grape sorting Grüner Veltliner Mr. Wood, after a short maceration time was squeezed gently. The pre-clarified must was cooled steel tank fermented with Spontanhefe and expanded to emphasize the racy character and fruity as well as possible. After the longest possible storage time on the lees of wine in the late winter has been put together finished and bottled.

Wieninger:
“Viennese wine” and “Wieninger” are nearly synonymous. Much of the prestige of Vienna’s wines can be attributed to the work of the Wieningers. The nearly 100-year-old winery was run exclusively as a “heurigen” (vineyard tavern) business until Fritz Wieninger, Jr., became manager of the wine production in the 1980s .

“Viennese wine” and “Wieninger” are nearly synonymous. Much of the prestige of Vienna’s wines can be attributed to the work of the Wieningers. The nearly 100-year-old winery was run exclusively as a “heurigen” (vineyard tavern) business until Fritz Wieninger, Jr., became manager of the wine production in the 1980s . He now concentrates solely on discriminating, high-quality wines. The wines are available mainly in fine restaurants and specialty shops. A small amount is sold at the winery. Wine-tasting is delightfully uncomplicated at the family’s own heurigen, which is managed by Fritz’s brother Leo. Approximately one third of the entire production is designated for export. Among the most important markets are Germany and the U.S., but the new EU member states have also shown a keen interest. Wieninger’s recipe for success can be found in the personal dedication of the entire Wieninger team. With that unique Viennese charm and grace, they are able to imbue in customers and friends of the house the winemaker’s philosophy and pleasure in the enjoyment of wine. Read less

Soft aromas, minerality, with spice and green apple, stony soils contribute to the wine's character, high acid.

Tasting Notes:

The wine is due to old vines already in the somewhat more concentrated class, is packed with a fruity intertwined Veltliner nose, fragrant and fresh on the palate, elegant and easy to drink with a lively acidity.

After careful grape selection by hand-picking and a further selection by a newly installed, fully automated grape sorting Grüner Veltliner Mr. Wood, after a short maceration time was squeezed gently. The pre-clarified must was cooled steel tank fermented with Spontanhefe and expanded to emphasize the racy character and fruity as well as possible. After the longest possible storage time on the lees of wine in the late winter has been put together finished and bottled.
