gruener-veltliner-karpatenschiefer-qwt-carnuntum-weingut-trapl-2014-075-lVintage: 2014

Grape: 100% Grüner Veltliner

Alcohol: 12.5 % vol

Region: Carnuntum, Austria

Tasting Notes: The wine has medium golden color and exhibits notes of apples, citrus and hints of honey. On the palate, it is dry, (very) yeasty and mineral with flavors of stone fruits and white pepper. With its high acidity, the wine is vibrant with a medium fresh finish.

Story: Johannes and Melanie Trapl own 18 hectares of vineyards in Stixneusiedl and Spitzberg. The combination of warm Pannonian microclimate and the breeze coming from Donau creates great growing conditions for the grapes. The winery is actually known for producing high-quality Blaufränkish but they also produce 20% of white wine. They are going through a process to become a biodynamic winery in the following years.

Music: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Learning to Fly

Baur au Lac Vins, CHF 29.50
