Gruner Veltliner is the crown jewel in Austria’s wine production thanks to the exquisite and unique white wines now being produced across the country. The Schuster family have been making wine for 250 years and focus on using traditional local varieties like Gruner and the rarer Roter Veltliner. Their ancient family connection with the vine means they are very aware of their place in nature and they seek to work in harmony with the earth.
The grapes used in the Alte Reben are harvested by hand from 50 to 60 year old vines planted on two different plots. After they arrive at the winery the grapes undergo a slow fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the freshness and pure varietal character. The wine is then stored on the lees for a period before bottling.
The Alte Reben is a truly special expression of Gruner Veltliner thanks to the use of old vines which have very deep roots and tend to produce incredibly concentrated grapes with an exceptionally focused and precise flavour profile. On the nose there are generous green apple, citrus and fresh herbs, while the palate offers a mouthwatering freshness, light body and hints of baked apples, oregano, thyme and a salty minerality.
