Buchmayer - Grüner Veltliner Kalvarienberg 2019
Producer: Buchmayer
Wine name: Grüner Veltliner Kalvarienberg
ABV: 13.0

A single vineyard version of the same producer’s Grüner Veltliner Natural, this is also the first vintage to be Demeter certified.

The nose shows lots of ripeness, and some signs of oak ageing (a butterscotch hint).

There’s a delightful interplay going on in this wine – on the attack there’s a hit of sweetness and ripeness which makes it feel opulent, but then that’s quickly reigned in by nice fruit acids.

In terms of fruit, there’s pear, ripe apple, even a hint of apricot and just a suggestion of green pepper too. Plus some wispy herby notes. In short, quite a lot going on, and a bright future for this – cellaring for a couple of years certainly can’t hurt.
