About

95

A very distinctive grüner veltliner from the flinty nose through the sleek and sinuous body to the intensely mineral finish. Made from biodynamically-grown grapes. Drink now. Screw cap.

91-92 Stephan Reinhardt - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Coming from gneiss soils covered with white and red sand and finally loess, the 2016 Engabrunner Stein 1ÖTW is Ott's one and only Kamptal Grüner Veltliner. Intensely citrus-colored, the wine opens with a clear and flinty bouquet of perfectly ripe white fruits and exciting citrus aromas. Round, finessed and elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, complex and mineral Veltliner with intense and lingering fruit aromas that are almost tropical. Although the 2016 is a bit too sweet for my taste, and also lunch or dinner, it is well structured due to the fine acidity and perfectly integrated minerality. Mind, though, that as soon as the CO2 has disappeared, the wine will taste sweeter than in the beginning. Tasted as a sample at Schloss Gobelsburg in July 2017.

Product Description:

The Engabrunner Stein Erste Lage, rests on the border of Wagram and Kamptal, technically belonging to the Kamptal region. This wine is grown on soils of gneiss, chalk and loess, as well as red and yellow sands. The grapes are grown on old vines, the oldest of which were planted in 1957. The wine receives a 30 hour maceration on the skins which contributes to its intensity of mineralic expression. The Stein is now RESPEKT – biodynamic certified. -- Importer
