Veyder-Malberg 2019 'Liebedich' Gruner Veltliner, Wachau, Austria

Producing fewer than 1000 cases per year, Peter's range of Gruner Veltliner and Riesling bottlings astound with their depth and complexity. He eschews the typical viticultural traditions of the Wachau. He is well beyond organic or biodynamic production with his thinking and spends his time cultivating positive working relationships with his insects or conversing with mushrooms and microorganisms that live in the root systems of his vines. These wines are exceptional, whether drinking now, or cellaring and enjoying in the future. 

Winemaker: Peter Veyder-Malberg

Farming: Organic (uncertified)

Variety: Gruner Veltliner

Terroir: Sourced from various terraced vineyards, some with old vines: Bruck, Schön, Buschenberg, Hochrain and Loibenberg. 

Soil: Gföhler gneiss (orthogneiss), mica-schist, sand and löss.

Vinification: From the phenomenal 2019 Austrian vintage! Grapes are picked to avoid botrytis. They may be macerated for up to 24hours. Basket pressed for 6-8 hours to give clean juice, and tank settled up to 24 hours. Fermentations are all natural and in a mix (depending the wine) of stainless steel and 300l-1500l old barrels. First sulfite additions are made after fermentation.

Aging: 5 months in stainless. Fined and lightly filtered.
