2013 Berry Bros. & Rudd Grüner Veltliner Weingeberge, Federspiel, Nikolaihof

Sold Out

Our inaugural Own Selection Grüner Veltliner is from the prized Wachau region of Austria. This fine example comes to us from the ancient winery of Nikolaihof, whose roots date back 2,000 years to Roman times. Organic and biodynamic fruit is from 45-year-old non-irrigated vines from the single ‘Im Weingebirge’ vineyard. The nose sings of fresh hay, sunny cereal, river stone and smoky citrus aromas; for this is a ‘Federspiel’ wine, hence the light as a feather style. Medium bodied, it’s delicate and flowing, river like, with white peach stone flavours and sapid crystalline rock minerality. David
