2018 Grüner Veltliner, Johannes Trapl, Carnuntum, Austria
Bright yellow-green colour with typical ‘Grüner’ flavours of freshly peeled pear, white pepper and blossom. The palate is broad and rich with saline minerality that’s counterbalanced with bright and refreshing acidity. This spicy wine pairs perfectly with fish, seafood or pasta dishes.
Johanne's organic journey began over 10 years ago with the initial goal being to have all of his vineyards certified, his attention has now turned to biodynamic practices. Devoted to plant diversity and vineyard care, his grapes are carefully watched as they reach a steady, healthy ripeness. This natural, low tech approach is continued in the winery where grapes for his premium wines are foot-trodden and then naturally fermented before being aged in amphoras to help bring to life the efforts and attention shown in the vineyard.
