Weinviertel DAC Grüner Veltliner 2021
Weinviertel DAC is a traditional Gruner Veltliner that is characterised by a pale to green-yellow colour and fruity, spicy-peppery flavour. It is produced as a dry wine (max. 6g/l residual sugar) and may feature neither wood nor botrytis tones. Alcohol content is between 12% and 13% by volume. The wine features the typical regional and varietal characteristics – also described as the so-called “pepperiness”, and may only be served from 15 January in the year following the harvest.
- Delicate peppery herbal spices mingled with a fragrantly fresh fruit basket, on the palate the elegant presence of pears, smooth fruity fusion, juicy and underscored by robust acidity; a classic Weinviertler with spices and pepperiness.
- Excellent with asparagus or typical dishes of the Viennese cuisine such as offal, roast chicken or Wiener Schnitzel.
