Martin Nigl comes from a long line of grape growers who have been farming in the Kremstal valley for at least 200 years. In 1985 he managed to convince his family to hold back the fruit from their vines and to bottle it themselves rather than their usual practice of selling it to the local cooperative. This proved to be a fortuitous decision, and today Martin crafts a wide variety of elegant whites using the traditional Riesling and Grüner Veltliner grapes that have been highly praised by wine critics.
This seductive Grüner Veltliner takes its name from the old vines or “alte reben” which produce the grapes for this wine. With an average age of 50 years, these are the oldest vines owned by the Nigl family and produce very high quality grapes with intensely concentrated flavours and aromas.
After the harvest Martin Nigl ferments the wine in used 300 litre Austrian oak casks and then transfers it to larger 2500 litre barrels for additional maturation. This gives the wine subtle hints of toast and nuts which combine harmoniously with the intense pineapple, grapefruit and green apple character from the Grüner Veltliner grape.
