Stadt Krems Grüner Veltliner Qualitätswein Trocken Kremstal Wachtberg 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

location & removal The typically Veltliner is tangy and light. This is because of the good loess soil and the very good climate. In middle of October the grapes were harvested. These were harvested strictly selective. After they were destemmed and pressed carefully, the must was fermented under controlled temperature in a stainless steel tank. characterisation Fresh and fruity; the aroma reminds on white currant, citrus fruits and the typically “Veltliner-Pfefferl”. The aromas are repeat also on the palate. analysis – facts alcohol content: 12,5 % acidity: 5,4 g residual sugar: 1,5 g (dry) storage – time You can drink this wine young, but you can also store this wine for 3-4 years. ideal temperature 10-12o Celcius food – reference The Grüner Veltliner is an ideal partner for traditional Austrian meals, but you can drink it also to asian food.

KARMÈRE VINEYARDS AND WINERY OF SHENANDOAH VALLEY is a result of five generations of farming and a love of the land and rural life. Marilyn K Hoopes, co-founder of Karmère, grew up in Teton Valley, Idaho on a potato farm on the Teton river in full view of the Grand Tetons. In l978, at age twenty-six, she moved to Amador County and fell in love with the bucolic Shenandoah Valley. She also fell in love with Todd Pickens who had recently moved from the Bay area and prior from L.A. to Amador County to become a "back to the lander." They made their home in Jackson, California and in l990 bought their first piece of property in Shenandoah Valley: a seventeen acre parcel adjacent to Terre Rouge. This is their home place. In l994, they completed an IRS 1031 real property trade and obtained the eighty-nine acre Jameson Ranch where the winery and tasting facility now exists. The name "Karmère" (car-mare) is in honor of Marilyn's mother Karma Hoopes: "mère" is the French word for mother. Since the land exchanged came from Marilyn's parent's estate and the existing farm in Idaho bears her father's name, Marilyn decided to honor her mother's hard work and vision and thus the name was created. Marilyn, an attorney, and Todd, an optometrist, are the parents of three grown children, Josh, Jared, and Hayley. All of the children are involved in the winery or vineyards. Todd continues to practice optometry and Marilyn works as a part-time Administrative Law Judge devoting the majority of her time to the winery and vineyards. The first Zinfandel vines were planted in l994. Plantings of zin, syrah, barbera, viognier, primitivo and nebbiolo have continued with sixty-seven acres planted of the hundred and five total.

So wonderfully drinkable, as my friend Allison would say. Smooth from beginning to end, excellent mineral notes, the barest amount of sweetness - like an almost ripe pear - somewhere in the middle. Would pair well with just about anything, but was excellent with the red meat we ordered it with. Plus, it has a glass cork - cool!!

This comes from a 30 hectare estate that's owned by the city of Krems. Full of clean, fresh herbed, dry Gruner Veltliner fruit. Lithe in texture and simply pretty. An excellent choice for seafood.
