Gruner Veltliner grapes are 1⁄2 whole cluster pressed and 1⁄2 briefly macerated. A slow and gentle pressing of more than five hours gives a rich grape must that is full of character. Fermentation is done in a combination of 70% stainless steel tanks, 25% big barrels, and 5% amphora (mash fermentation). The different cuvees are blended and aged on the lees with battonage for six months in stainless steel and oak barrels.

Johannes’s Grüner is distinct from examples one might find in Kamptal or Wachau regions of Austria. The flavor profile features notes of apples and herbs on the nose, a medium-bodied texture that is refreshing yet complex and multi-faceted on the palate with shimmering minerality and a hint of phenolic character. Johannes calls this his “classic Gruner… with dangerous drinking fun.”

Alc: 12% vol | residual sugar: 1,1 g/lt | acid: 6,0 g/lt | total sulfites: <35 mg Certified Demeter biodynamic.
