2021 HOCHSCHOPF 1ÖTW Erste Lage Grüner Veltliner

Tasting Notes
Initially ripe apple with a delicate quince in the background appears in the nose, then straw flowers and suddenly an autumn meadow in the Sunshine. You feel like Isaac Newton under the apple tree: that’s what it must have smelled like when he discovered gravity. The palate is enveloped by a spicy fullness that only unfolds its structure and piquancy in the finish. As soon as the wine is out of the mouth, the spice dances surpris- ingly lively and persistently on the taste buds. The wine has a stimulating and inspir- ing effect.
Harmonizes perfectly with beef roulades, ideal with truffle risotto,
with goose or matured red smear cheese.
