Faber-Köchl - Grüner Veltliner Natur 2020
Producer: Faber-Köchl
Wine name: Grüner Veltliner Natur
Classification: Weinland
ABV: 11.5

Sadly the new barriques used for a part of this wine overawe the rest of the wine. There is spine tingling acidity and tangy fruit, but it can barely survive the onslaught of oak. The attack shows lovely taut fruit and a nice sage note, and the finish shows a subtle but balancing tannic grip.

The part of the wine that was not fermented in barriques was fermented with its skins. It would have been great to taste that part on its own!

Maybe given 2-3 years for the oak to recede, this could be a great wine.

Bottled unfiltered. Full malolactic.
