Gruner Veltiner 'Stein' 2014

75cl Jurtschitsch Gruner Veltiner Austria > Kamptal Fruit driven, smooth and dry
Grüner Veltliner from the volcanic and granite Steinhaus vineyard is a crisp, fresh mineral wine. It is taut, with tangy, citrus and grapefruit flavours and finishes bone-dry.

The Jurtschitsch family has owned this magnificent winery since 1868.Today, it is run by three brothers, Edwin, Paul and Karl producing a large range of Langenlois and Kamptal wines, all of impeccable quality. The majority of the 60 hectares of vineyards are based in Langenlois, a naturally protected basin, where high temperatures are common during the day due to extensive sun exposure, while cool air flows in from the bordering, higher situated Waldviertal region in the evening. This temperature variation is the secret to the wonderfully distinctive flavour development noted primarily with Grüner Veltliner and Riesling from this region. In the 1970’s, the brothers began using compost and green fertilisation to nourish their soils and since 2006, the vineyard management has been converted to controlled organic methods.
