Alzinger 2019 'Steinertal' Smaragd Grüner Veltliner, Wachau, Austria

Winemaker: Leo Alzinger

Farming: Sustainable

Variety: Grüner Veltliner (Samragd ripeness level)

Terroir:  Steinertal  is an extremely complex location that offers optimal terrain for both Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. The situation turns a little to the southwest, so in the evening always gets some heat, which are relativized by air currents from the north accordingly. The ground thickness varies considerably, as does the temperature within the location. The foundation of the Grüner Veltliner lies in the lower and deeper terraces, although here too, despite a slightly creamier texture, vital acidity and profound minerality set the tone. 

Vinification: Spontaneously fermented in stainless steel.

Aging: Elevage in steel with a small amount of neutral Austrian oak.
