Nikolaihof Im Weingebirge Smaragd Wachau Grüner Veltliner

Thought to be the oldest documented vineyard, the name “Im Weingebirge” dates back to the 5th Century. The wines from this vineyard are known to have impressive depth and minerality. The soil is varied with loess on the higher terraces and deep topsoil over primary rock lower down the slope. The wine ages on its lees in old barrels, giving creamy texture.

Review:
Dried pineapple and bitter lemon with cooked green apple. Some aniseed. Full-bodied with petrol and dried tropical fruit. Delicious now, at this age. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now. Screw cap.
