Weingut Stadt Krems Grüner Veltliner Sandgrube 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.

Weingut Stadt Krems:
Historically, Weingut Stadt Krems arose from two sources. The first source is the property of the Bürgerspitalstiftung - In 1210, Duke Leopold IV of Babenberg founded a public hospital in Krems and left important legacies to it, including vineyards. The second source was the generous bequest of the imperial Burggrave of Krems, Ulrich von Dachsberg, who presented the town with vineyards in 1452.... Read more
Historically, Weingut Stadt Krems arose from two sources. The first source is the property of the Bürgerspitalstiftung - In 1210, Duke Leopold IV of Babenberg founded a public hospital in Krems and left important legacies to it, including vineyards. The second source was the generous bequest of the imperial Burggrave of Krems, Ulrich von Dachsberg, who presented the town with vineyards in 1452. With over 550 years of history, Weingut Stadt Krems is one of the oldest wine-producers in Austria, and even in the whole of Europe. The clash of the Western Baltic oceanic climate with that of East Pannonia leads to an exciting interplay and strong climatic variations between day and night, and all that in a narrow space, but the mighty Danube helps to balance them out. Naturally, the vegetation is affected by such sharp variations in temperature and this proves to be very beneficial for winegrowing: it is precisely such conflicting climatic influences that give the wines their fruity taste and bouquet. Hours Monday to Friday 9:00-12:00am and 1:00-5:00pm Saturday 9:00am-1:00pm Read less

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.
