Weingut Turk Erlesenes Vom Gruner Veltliner 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Weingut Türk dates back to the beginning of the 18th century and consists of fifteen hectares of vines - 75% Grüner Veltliner - cultivated sustainably on loess, primary rock, and conglomerate soils in Kremstal - the heart of Austrian winemaking. Franz says that his aim is to capture the positive energy of the sun in fluid form; to express the uniqueness of each vintage, the soil, and the microclimate and to respect the craft and art of winemaking. Erlesenes Vom Grüner Veltliner is much richer than the Kremser Weinberge, this wine was harvested at 23.8°Brix after several manual selections in the vineyard. It has an intensely spicy nose and rich, almost creamy fruit all balanced with rapier sharp acidity. Notes of pear, melon and white pepper give this wine its wonderfully complex character, while fantastic minerality ensures a fresh finish. This is an immensely versatile food wine and pairs particularly well with Asian dishes.
