Drink now through to 2024. Serve well chilled.

One of Wachau’s hidden secrets, Holzapfel is still not well-known outside its native Austria despite producing some truly inspired and delicious white wines from classic local grapes like Gruner Veltliner and Riesling. The 9.5 hectare estate is run by Karl Holzapfel who is passionate about crafting terroir-driven wines from the best quality fruit he can grow. The winery itself is based in a historic mansion which was established 700 years ago by the Canons of St Pölten.

Bursting with mouthwatering freshness and stony minerality, this cracking Gruner Veltliner begins life in the Achleiten vineyard where the vines grow on steep hillside terraces. To capture the natural purity and acidity of the fruit, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks with lees stirring to add complexity and body to the finished wine.

The nose opens with luscious tropical fruit and bright citrus while the first sip reveals a crisp acidity, light body and distinctive minerality on the clean finish. The minerality and bright fruit character make this a great partner for fresh seafood as well as chicken and fish dishes served in a creamy sauce. It also pairs well with tricky ingredients like asparagus which can be difficult to match with wines.
