Category: Grüner Veltliner
Austria’s most significant white wine variety is Grüner Veltliner, which most probably derives from a crossing with Traminer. The second parent remains unconfirmed, but it is thought to be a Century old variety discovered in St. Georgen in Burgenland.This grape variety was named after its discovery location because, following genetic research, it could not be attributed to any known variety. It became the most widely planted grape variety in Austria in the 1950s because of the introduction then of Lenz Moser´s Hochkultur (High Culture) training system. Grüner Veltliner delivers all quality levels – from lightacidity-toned wines to the highly ripe Prädikat wines. The site and the yield are crucial to the quality. Spicy, peppery versions are preferred; so are versions showing stone fruit notes.
