Gruner Veltliner Am Berg, Ott

Am Berg or “From the Mountain” is the basic wine and a great choice for by the glass. Light in texture and very fresh, this is an organically farmed, classic GV from loess soils in Feuersbrunn. Natural fermentation in stainless steel, on the fine lees until February after the vintage.

Tasting Notes

“Best from a smaller glass, and best served “quite cool.” It was spicier and more peppery from Zalto; it’s muscular but not a body-builder type. Some phenolics apparent. Analog. A decent intro to Ott, but be aware it isn’t a pixilated “modern” GV.” Terry Theise
