2019 Klassik Artner
Carnuntum is a very celebrated region within Austria for fine wine production. We are delighted to have met the Artner family who make this brilliant, bright Grüner here. Delicious, pithy green citrus notes hold forth on the attack - and are echoed with a gentle pep on the tongue. Delightfully juicy. And yet there is depth too, perfumed with superb texture. A great new addition to our list. Fresh, but far from simple. L&S (Oct 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Our classic Grüner Veltliner has a fragrant apple bouquet, nettle and a little lime. On the palate it is light-footed, with a fine structure and plenty of spice.Winemaker's notes(Jun 2020)
Winemaking in Carnuntum, half-way between Vienna and Bratislava, dates back to Roman times. The Artner winery can trace its origins back to 1650, when it was part of a more mixed agriculture. Since 1980 the family has focused on wine.
Loess and limestone soils as well as the continental-Pannonian climate with the cooling influence of the Danube to the north offer ideal conditions for viticulture. In the 40 hectares of vineyard they are in the process of organic certification, and work as closely as possible with nature, with cover crops between the rows and even planting trees to attract more insect life.There is a wide range of wines, with a particular emphasis on red wines, but we have picked out their Grüner as offering exceptional value
For those with a penchant for trying something different this Christmas. This case will tantalize your tastebuds with unusual blends, new wave reds and a couple of southern hemisphere superstars. It often pays to look beyond the traditional.
