2012 Pfaffl Hommage Grüner Veltliner

$51.00

Founder Roman Pfaffl put his signature front and center on the label of this fine Grüner as a testament and tribute to this grape and his career as a vintner. Comprised of the best fruit from the oldest vines, this is the superlative bottling for the winery, representing everything they stand for in one bottle. The aromatics are powerful, blending a mineral salinity with grilled pineapple and blood orange. The palate develops into herbs, spices, and a touch of oak with a fine acidity. Perfect now or capable of further bottle aging.


ABV % = 13.5

Weinviertel

Weinvertel, named for Wien or Vienna, is one of the rare wine regions that is located within the capital of a country. Many of the wines here are consumed in the local "heurige," or wine bars, upon release. The white Gruner Veltliner and Riesling and the red St. Laurent and Blaufrankisch are the primary grapes of the region. Weinvertel whites are lean and racy, with a notable freshness. The reds are similar to the great wines of Beaujolais, with aromatic, pretty red fruits, and delicate floral elements. Both white and reds become incredibly complex with age.
