Alzinger Gruner Veltliner 'Steinertal' Smargad Wachau 2017

Alzinger’s 11 hectares of vines span some of Austria’s greatest growing sites, including Steinertal and Loibenberg. All of the estate’s fruit is whole-cluster crushed and sees short macerations, creating elegant wines of pristine quality. ‘Steinertal’ Gruner comes from a cooler plot of terraced vines, creating a wine full of savory pear, yeast, and salt flavors, loaded with zesty, citrus-driven acidity. Drink now or lay down for 10+ years!
