Grüner Veltliner 2018
Under the title "Discoveries from the Winery" (Entdeckungen), special project wines are vinified and bottled in small quantities at the Jurtschitsch Winery every year since 2007. Each of these wines, of which often only a small barrel is vinified, begins in the mind.
The hand-picked grapes for the Amour Fou come from a vineyard in Langenlois, the Loiserberg. In search of the variety of flavours of the grape variety, combined with the idea of exploring the potential of Grüner Veltliner, we fermented the ripe but not overripe berries on the mash, partly in wooden barrels and partly in a ceramic egg. Every day we tasted until the optimum of complexity, aroma and depth was reached. After two weeks we decided to separate the wine from the mash and to store it on the yeast for 18 months. We do not want to overload our natural wines with tannins, but rather tell a story of their variety, the elegant Kamptal fruit and its origin.
Fermentation with berries has created a timeless Grüner Veltliner with tension and structure on the palate. An idea, a thought, in search of the
diversity of taste in wine.
