Weszeli - Grüner Veltliner Schenkenbichl 2016
Producer: Weszeli
Wine name: Grüner Veltliner Schenkenbichl
Classification: Kamptal DAC
ABV: 13.0

Almost floral on the nose, big and blowsy, ripe pear, custard apple, soft and creamy. Perhaps oak has played a part in shaping this (although its subtle – fermentation took place partly in used large oak barrels and partly in steel tanks), it feels as though the edges are rounded off. Could do with a bit more tension. Slightly savoury character to the fruit on the finish. Enjoyable but doesn’t quite have the nuance and delicate mineral touch of some of the best examples.

Spontaneous fermentation.
