Geyerhof Ried Hoher Rain Grüner Veltliner 2020
Geyerhof Ried Hoher Rain offers elegant fruit flavours and a silky character. Pale gold in the glass. Fresh pear and apple aromas on the nose with a yeasty richness and delicate herb accents of mint and white pepper. The medium-bodied palate has an invigorating acidity, silky texture and good substance. Pure Veltliner fruitiness with bubbles of juicy grapefruit and lemon citrus, pear and peach in syrup flavours. Stoney mineral and honey finish.
100% Grüner Veltliner from Geyerhof’s Ried Hoher Rain vineyard. 100 years ago, mining activities took place below this site, but now the sandy-loam soils are home to Grüner Veltliner. Thanks to the soil’s abundant nutrients and water storage capacity, this site offers elegant fruit with a silky character.
Manual harvesting of the fruit in small boxes at the beginning of October. Following this, the grapes go through whole bunch pressing. Slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks, ageing on full lees for 5 months. Vegan.
Ageing potential: Drink until 2032.
