Johann Donabaum Johann Gruner Veltliner Federspiel 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Johann Donabaum is a young man on a mission. After only a few years he is carving out a formidable reputation for concentrated, mineral-laden white wines. His wines are always in high demand. The production from his five hectares of hillside vineyards in the Spitzer Valley is miniscule. Despite this his prices remain very competitive. Winter was quite mild, there was good rainfall throughout and a high amount of sunshine hours during summer. Grapes were harvested by hand and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Naturally fined Vintage: 2008 Grapes: 100% Gruner Veltliner Notes: Text book fruit, white pepper and watercress on the nose. A fabulous envigorating palate with light apple and white peach characters and exceptional minerality. Young Johann worked with legendary Wachau producer FX Pixler before returning to the family Domaine. This is a wonderful example of Gruner Veltliner Serve: Fish, white meat, almost any type of Salad. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans ABV: 13%
