Sepp Moser Classic Style Organic Gruner Veltliner 2018
The Sepp Moser Estate was founded by the famous Austrian wine producing pioneer, Lenz Moser. Lenz Moser's son, Sepp Moser, began operating under his name in 1987 and handed over the direction of this family-owned estate to his son Nikolaus in the year 2000.
The majority of the Gruner Veltliner grapes for this dry white were grown on the steep, rocky terraces of Rohrendorf in Kremstal and the surrounding area. The löss soil on these steep terraces is rich in lime and sediments from the last ice age, and can be up to 35 metres thick! Vines are trained on high trellises, with grapes organically produced and hand-harvested. Grapes are destemmed and crushed and the must be left to settle for 3-4 hours before pressing. Fermented and aged in stainless steel.
Delicate aromas of pear, kiwi, apricot and white spice. On the palate stone fruit flavours and white pepper lead to a gently textured, mineral and citrus finish. Match with white fish or chicken salad.
