2019 Pratsch Organic Gruner Veltliner

$12.50

Stefan Pratsch assumed winemaking duties in his family’s 8th-generation winery before he could legally drink the wines! The idea was to free his parents to pursue their passion for organically tending the vineyards. Their deep attunement to the health of their glacially-deposited limestone soils has set a gold standard for forward-thinking viticulture in Austria. The white Gruner-Veltliner (GROO-ner VELT-linner, or just Gru-V) is Austria’s signature variety, alive with golden tree fruits (pear, peach, quince) and a distinct white pepper-turmeric spiciness. Bring on the Old Bay Seasoning and crustaceans, and get your Gruner on!


ABV % = 12

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.
