Tasting notes: 
From these ancient, ungrafted vines, comes a beautifully nuanced, full and elegant Gru?ner Veltliner with hints of fennel, spice and juicy tropical fruit, complex and minerally with fresh forward fruit and finely balanced acidity. With this texture and depth, it is distinguished in every phase and has a long, luxurious finish.
Very limited yield; great aging potential.
