Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes are picked in the cool of the morning, at optimum ripeness, de-stemmed and lightly crushed before being transported to the press, where the free-run juice is collected and grapes gently pressed. The juice is then left to settle for 24 hours at cold temperatures. The clarified juice is fermented at approximately 18º Celsius in temperature-controlled tanks to keep all the wine’s freshness and fruitiness. After fermentation, the finished wine is left on the fine lees for between four to six weeks to increase complexity.


Serving Hints
Served lightly chilled, this Gruner Veltliner is perfect on its own as an aperitif and also a wonderful accompaniment to shellfish and other seafood, chicken, veal, pork and other “white meat” dishes.
