Gruner Veltliner Ried Spiegel Erste Lage, Ott

This is a south facing site at the very highest elevation. The consistently high extract is due to the deep roots of the vine, intensity and spiciness of its southern exposure. The soils here are a mix of deep loess and red gravel – a sort of mix of the two soil types from Rosenberg and Stein. Often Terry’s favorite site!

Tasting Notes

“In the real world, SPIEGEL is completely glorious; complex, high toned but juicy, glaringly white somehow, like Sherry soils – it even has a Manzanilla snap – with three registers of complexity; fruits, savories, exotics, spices and mints. Vigorous and in every way richly satisfying.” Terry Theise
