Nikolaihof 2019 'Hefeabzug' Gruner Veltliner, Wachau, Austria

Nikolaihof’s holdings are some of the farthest east in the Wachau, near the village of Mautern on the Danube’s south bank. These are also some of the oldest known vineyards in Europe, with sites such as “im Weingebirge” being mentioned as far back as 470AD. Whether it’s Nikolaus biodynamic know-how, his focus on ancestral vinification techniques, or the quality of his terroir, the resulting wines are wildly unique and joyful and immensely food-friendly. 
  • Grapes: Grüner Veltliner
  • Farming: Demeter-certified Biodynamic.  
  • Terroir: Sourced from multiple sites near Mautern, from loess soils.
  • Vinification:  Long, slow fermentation in 100% Stainless steel
  • Tasting Notes: A tropical, layered and precise wine, the Gruner offers tons of pithy citrus notes, accented by mango and freshly cut guava aromas. Pair with spicy dishes, fried poultry or a picnic in the sun. 
  • Scores: 94PTS, James Suckling
