Malat 2019 'Gottschelle' 1 ÖTW Grüner Veltliner, Kremstal, Austria

Winemaker: Michael Malat

Farming: Sustainable

Variety: Grüner Veltliner

Terroir:  Malat’s vineyards are located on the right bank (south side) of the Danube.  The name Gottshelle originates from the middle ages where it meant “sharp ledges on the ridges.” There is such a ledge on the Gottschelle. The soil is comprised of sandy, loamy silt with loess that was formed during different phases of the most recent Ice Age. Vines average 25 years in age. 

Vinification: The grapes are hand picked and selected without botrytis. The press is gentle and the fermentation is made spontaneous with natural yeast in 2500-liter old barrels. The first sulfite addition is done right after pressing and before fermentation.

Aging: 6-8 months in old 2500-liter barrels on fine lees. No fining. Filtered.

Tasting Notes: Intensely aromatic and fresh, with aromas of white nectarine, green apple and gardenias. Hints of ginger and wet stone round the mid-palate. The wine finishes elegantly, with texture and richness, elongated by fresh, lasting acidity. 

About the Classification: ÖTW ERSTE LAGE 1ÖTW (Premier Cru). These are vineyards whose wines have manifested themselves (and continue thus) as the most vigorous in character and the most distinctive representatives of their appellations.
