Grüner Veltliner

2018

Kamptal DAC

Fully ripe & delicate at the same time, some lecithin & pepper, also a hint of blossom honey, abundantly detailed; nicely contoured & firmly interwoven, packed with notes of yellow fruit (Golden Delicious apple), creamy texture and conspicuous length.

Viktor Siegl

“Alte Reben” means “old vines” and designates a wine sourced from our oldest vineyards with vines averaging 50 years. Older vines are less productive, forming fewer and smaller grapes that profit from a well developed root system. This root system reaches deeply into the ground and supplies its fruit with potent nourishment. As a consequence, wines of these vineyards are extremely flavourful with enormous concentration.

Maturation

Grapes were harvested only in November in healthy condition. The wine fermented in used (2-3 years old) 300 litre Austrian oak casks. After fermentation it was racked into used 2500 litre barrels (2-3 years old) for further maturation.

Food pairing recommendation

Very versatile with food, matches ideally with classic Austrian cuisine, such as Tafelspitz (boiled Silverside), Backhendl (Austrian fried Chicken), or Wiener Schnitzel, vegetables, when a bit more matured (3-5 years) with gratins, diverse fish-dishes, also marinated fish and seafood, smoked salmon and trout etc., as well as with many Pan-Asian dishes.
