Stephan Reinhardt - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Ott's 2015 Feuersbrunner Rosenberg 1ÖTW Grüner Veltliner is a selection only from the oldest, 60-years-old vines, whereas in former vintages 45+-year-old vines were included. The 2015 opens with a fascinatingly clear, floral and herbal bouquet of great precision and individuality. With white-fruit aromas, but mainly mineral flavors, this is one of the greatest Veltliner bouquets I have ever sniffed. On the palate the wine is bone-dry, knife-sharp precise, elegant, finesse-full and rich in a reduced way. Less than 1 grams of residual sugar. Rich and juicy, but extremely sharp and mineral, with a great verve and livliness and a very long and salty finish. This is Ott's quintessence of Grüner Veltliner, and if I say Ott I am speaking of Mister Veltliner. A benchmark not only in the Wagram and a strong proof for the thesis that Wagram's loess soils do not necessarily give rich and creamy textured wines of great opulence. This Rosenberg is the wine to challenge the 2015s from Prager, Wachau. I tasted it from the Zalto Universal which stresses the sharpness, precision and salinity, whereas Zalto's Burgundy glass is more mouth-feel, roundness, balance and elegance, also more fruit."

Product Description:

"The top Grüner Veltliner each year is from the Feuersbrunner Rosenberg Erste Lage vineyard, acquired by Bernhard’s father in 1961 with vines dating back to 1956. The soils here are deep loess, which coupled with the 54 year old vines create a complex and harmonious concentration. The wine is mind-bending with tight minerality infused with an intensity nearly impossible to find elsewhere. The Rosenberg is recently RESPEKT – biodynamic certified." - Distributor
