Bottled in February of this year, the 2021 Grüner Veltliner Am Berg shows a reductive and yeasty, slightly lactic nose with pure and elegant, slightly flinty-scented fruit. Pure and fresh on the palate, this is a light yet savory and saline, grippy and juicy Veltliner with a long and saline finish. A stunning wine that is highly digestible and tensioned. 12% stated alcohol. Screw-cap closure. Tasted at the domaine in September 2022.

Gorgeous silky texture marks this racy white, while laser-like acidity cuts through the rich core of quince, yellow apple and white gooseberry. There is a great balance here, and its elegance is inviting.
The Ott family has been growing and producing wine in the region of Wagram in Lower Austria since 1889. Bernhard Ott is of the fourth generation and has managed the winery since 1993 when he took the helm from his father. When he came home to the winery as a 21-year-old, he was interested in producing wines of the highest quality. Bernhard wanted to prove that elegant and long lived wines could be produced from Grüner Veltliner grown on loess soil, specifically from Rosenberg vineyard. Bernhard replaced the old wooden casks with stainless steel and began working the vineyards with an aim for the highest high quality. In 2018, nearly 30 years after taking over and switching all vinification and élevage to steel, Bernhard began working with varying sizes of Stockinger fuders.
Am Berg or “From the Mountain” is the basic wine and a great choice for by the glass. Light in texture and very fresh, this is an organically farmed, classic Grüner Veltliner from loess soils in Feuersbrunn.
