A real appetizer as an aperitif and a fascinating companion to salads, cod or classic Viennese cuisine!
VINIFICATION The hot Kugelberg requires an early harvest in September. Manually and with small boxes we can harvest absolutely health grapes. After pneumatic pressing the Veltliner has a maceration of not more than 2 hours to develop a fine fruit-pepper-balance. Afterwards it is fermented at 17,5° C in steel tanks.
TRAINING SYSTEM The medium high trellis training system and the high canopy provide the berries with optimal photosynthesis and the best air circulation for real good berries. The cane pruning system leaves just one eye to shoot in spring. Additionally to the green harvest this brings a maximum of quality into our berries.
TERROIROn the south facing hill called Kugelberg the Grüner Veltliner earns its full fruit. The southern slope allows the grapes ripen magnificently, without getting heavy. Airy soil with gravel under loam and loess do the rest for this fruity-peppery Grüner Veltliner.
WEATHER 2016 Bad beginning, happy end. Late frosts in April caused damage, but turned out to be a natural quality selection. This was an enormous advantage in this wet and warm summer, because we had healthy grapes. The heat came at harvest and the ripeness grew, as wet sold weather bursted in, so you can now look forward to Weinwurms best ripeness-acidity balance.
