An absolutely banging classic Grüner! Vibrant, Alive, Fruited, Exotic, Peppered! It's just right. Hello holidays!
Organic w/biodynamic principles. Sourced from Schodl’s plot in the town of Blumenthal. Loess mixed with sandstone soils. Grapes are harvested in mid-Oct. After destemming the berries have skin contact for a few hours to extract flavor from the skins. There is more skin contact here than w/ Löss & Lehm bottling and the yields are also lower on this bottling. After gentle pressing, the juice went through fermentation in stainless steel tank with natural yeast at a temperature with 18°C. Aged on the fine lees until bottled.
THE SCHÖDL FAMILY originally built their farm at the end of World War II as a mixed agriculture and wine operation, it was then transformed into a vineyard and winemaking focused operation in the 1980’s by Hubert Schödl, a winemaking professor. Since 2012 the winery has been run by his children Matthias, Leonhard and Viktoria. Nestled between Vienna and the Czech Republic the Weinviertel region is influenced by the Danube and March rivers and a Pannonian climate of hot, dry summers and dry, cold winters. The resulting grapes reach full ripeness and maintain refreshing acidity.
True cool climate wines. The Schödl’s focus on several unique expressions of Grüner Veltliner and St. Laurent. Chardonnay, Weisser Burgunder and Pinot Noir are also grown for the production of world class sparkling wines. In and around the village of Loidesthal the Schödl’s 15 ha of vineyards are all farmed organically.
