The wine has a fruity entrée with notes of white flowers, apple, green pears, subtle nuances of herbs; fine acidity, bright fruit character, some mirabelle, yellow apple, beautiful texture, very versatile food companion.
Gruner Veltliner Loss forms the basis of Hiedler's portfolio. It is sourced from vines growing on the eponymous loess soils. They have been formed over the millennia by deposits of weathering alpine rock, crushed under the weight of ice age glaciers.
Enormous storms have deposited this dust, in various mineral compositions of clays, lime, quartz, and mica, also in the southern Kamptal. The mineral-rich and porous soil, in which the vines form a deep root system, characterizes the typical bright fruit and cool spice of this Veltliner.
A layered, creamy textured white with sliced-pear, flint and dried-mango character. It’s dry and flavorful. Lovely finish. Drink and enjoy.
