Gruner Veltliner ‘Der Ott’, Ott
Ott’s premiere line of Grüner Veltliner’s begins with “Der Ott,” made from the younger, 10-12 year old, vines of the top three Erste Lage sites – Spiegel, Stein and Rosenberg.
This cuvée normally includes young-vines from the three Crus, but in 2014 it’s all here, and so this wine has some attitude!
A 2-class upgrade, it has an erotic minerality and every type of complexity, animal vegetable and mineral, not to mention herbs,
a whole garden of herbs in the late-day sunlight, verbena and anise-hyssop all crammed into a veritable syringe of density—
yet with all of 12.7% alc! One of the great wines of 2014. – Terry Theise
