Gruner Veltliner ‘Der Ott’, Ott

Declassified Erste Lagen fruit that didn’t quite make the cut for the top three wines. This is a short step away from the top wines – multilayered and more powerful without density. Even in ripe years, this wine is rarely over 13% alcohol and is always a complex expression of Berhard’s work in the vineyard.

Tasting Notes

“A wonderful edition of this, recalling the outstanding 2014; beautifully herbal with inferences of stone; savory, like roasting 5 different breads in a single oven; crusty like the end-cap of a roast; peppers, cardamom, allspice; I love its gentle force.” Terry Theise
