Weingut Esterhazy Estoras Grüner Veltliner
WHY WE LOVE IT
- The winery is located in the Burgenland municipality of Großhöflein on the southern slope of the Leithaberg in the Leithaberg wine-growing region.
- Leithaberg DAC is always mineral-driven and relatively robust in character.
- Nature-friendly cultivation is highly important for all Esterházy’s wines.
Varietal Composition: 100% Green Valtellina
Elaboration: Selected grapes are fermented in different batches cooled at 19 ° Celsius and then left for 9 months on the fine lees in steel tanks. This gives the wine its elegant structure and fine enamel.
Tasting Notes: Light straw yellow, yellow apple and peach on the nose, with slightly smoky, mineral notes. The palate is characterized by elegant acidity paired with a fine fruity sweetness. In addition, subtle yeast notes give the wine a firm, very elegant structure.
“Peardrop, green Conference pear and a lovely lime zest notion are vivid on the nose. The palate adds slight creaminess and a yeasty, slightly salty texture, roudning out this fresh, light, dry and savory wine.” – Anne Krebiehl, Wine Enthusiast
