Holzapfel Zehenthof Gruner Veltliner Federspiel 2014

$ 8.00

In 2014 few vintners got as lucky as Karl Holzapfel, whose famous vineyards (Achleiten, Klaus and Kollmitz) produced brilliant and fresh wines that reached Federspiel classifications with ease. If you look a bit further North in the valley many wines did not reach this distinction and had to be chaptalized, and -- due to the strict laws of the region -- also be declassified to wines that don't carry the Federspiel distinction. This Gruner Veltliner Federspiel was grown in chalk-silicate, loess and gravel in parcels of varying degrees of elevation. The grapes were pressed immediately without a period of maceration, fermented in stainless steel tank with temperature control, then kept on the lees until the end of January.
