Wagram Gruner Veltliner 2022, Eschenhof Holzer, Wagram
The grapes come from a mixture of the Eschenhof Holzer vineyards and some from neighbouring friends in Grossreidenthal. It is a fuller and fruitier style of Grüner
Veltliner, with big flavours of green apples, peach, grapefruit and spice.
The Eschenhof Holzer winery is located in Großriedenthal, in the Wagram wine region. On the ~19 hectare estate, the innovative wine maker, Arnold Holzer, draws on the unique bounty of nature, with a great deal of creativity, a distinctive style and a sense for delicious creations
It’s all about the soil. The loess in this region creates the natural conditions for the rich wine. The soil drifted here in multiple layers during the last ice age, about
100,000 to 10,000 years ago and covered the sub soil with marine deposits. Due to the valuable mineral composition, the loess soil creates a balanced depository of
nutrients. Thanks to it’s small granules and high capillary, the loess soil is able to preserve a lot of water for drying times. The wines that thrive in the loess region
are distinguished by a particularly characterful, long lasting and delicate fruit. Mainly harvested by machine, directly pressed, clarified and fermented in stainless
steel with selected yeast that’s typical for the Grüner Veltliner aromatics. No malolactic is used.
