vom Schloss 2017

The traditional grape variety. Notes of yellow fruit like mango and pineapple on the nose combine with spicy aromas of ripe fruit. Showing finesse and complexity on the palate, it is a vibrant and powerful Veltliner full of elegance.

Vinification

Healthy grapes only were hand-picked in the beginning of October and gently pressed after 8 hours of maceration. The self-clearing must was left to ferment slowly with wild yeast from the vineyard (spontaneous fermentation) in traditional, large wooden barrels in the perfect atmosphere provided in the estate cellar. The wine aged on its lees in wooden barrels for several months to build its distinctive character with deep aromas of fruit and elegance.

Recommended drinking temperature: 12-14°C
Anticipated maturity:
2018-2023

Food pairing

A very fine match with the classics of Austrian food. As for fish, it goes extremely well with salmon or trout with almond slivers.
