Gruner Veltliner Rosenberg, Ott
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.
OK, understanding that I’m describing an embryonic wine, into the breach go I….markedly mineral aromas lead into a massively structured palate; like GV on an IMAX screen; as close as white wine comes to the experience of drinking red wine. Like the fatcap on a pork-knuckle with roasted carrots. It’s half-wine, half-food.- Terry Theise
