Ott 'Der Ott' Grüner Veltliner

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

Put it this way: would you ignore Bourgogne Rouge from Henri Jayer? This wine is made from young vines in the three Grand Crus, and if those wines are too spendy you can get a lot of their mojo here. Or if you happen to like intense wine but not big wine. This has a truly compelling aroma and a wonderful palate, meaty and roasty, salty and robust yet warming and sustaining; chewy but with its own rotund sort of polish. – Terry Theise
