Leth Roter Veltliner Wagram Scheiben 2011

Member Review by ergodos:

Richer than a grüner. I did a short search and believe that the consensus is that there is no relation anyway. This has some Mosel type qualities but also a lot of freshness and acidity. That nice petrol quality comes through in just the right amount

This white wine has terrific concentration, with floral and white pepper notes. Made from Roter Veltliner vines that are about 40 years old, the finished wine is rich and viscous with a lasting finish. The winemakers have taken full advantage of the phenomenal quality of the Scheiben vineyard.

This Roter Veltliner has great concentration, with floral and white pepper notes. The vines are about 40 years old, producing a rich, viscous wine with a long finish. The quality of the Scheiben vineyard is shown here.

Vintage: 1990 05/21/2011

Forgotten in the cellars of the Leth winery, the 1990 vintage of Roter Veltliner was rediscovered one day, lucky for us. The cellar managers assessed each bottle, poured off the liquid into a large demi-john where the flavors could mix and mingle, then re-bottled and corked and sent off. With certain capacity to continue in the cellar, this is complex and enjoyable now. Luxuriant unfiltered honey apricot notes blended with wild yellow flowers, on the palate one finds singing acidity married to herbal notes carried on broadly textured body. Roter Veltliner, a varietal named for the rose color of its skins, is indigenous to Austria, at home on the loess soils of Leth vineyards. When yields are reduced, it has historically been capable of extraordinary, ageworthy wines.
