Hajszan-Neumann Grüner Veltliner NATURAL 2020

Wien (Vienna), AustriaNatural is Fritz Wieninger's experimental range of wines, still biodynamic, as is his family's Weingut Wieninger. This is the only NATURAL wine done in stainless, and here it spends 3.5 months prior to bottling without fining, filtration, or sulphur. This Grüner Veltliner comes from an old vineyard in Ried Gabrissen on Vienna's Bisamberg, a sunny south-facing location on loess, with high lime content and a prominent gravel band in the higher part of the vineyard. Tight and sleek, with hops, apricot skin, pear skin, tangerine, gentle blossoms on a pure, bright palate, lingering with a saline wash. There's a persistent, fine grip from skin time, but not nearly as much as the other NATURAL wines, aged in amphora.Tasted: 11 November 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
