Auslese Spiegel 2017
Balanced, dynamic, and straight-lined. Our Auslese uses a mixture of fresh and sweet grapes, which delivers the best of both worlds. The animating acidity is embedded in a dense and juicy mouth-feel, with sweet and alluring fruit in addition to lasting spiced finish on the palate.
The making of the wine
Our noble rot grapes are meticulously hand harvested on several occasions, afterwards the grapes are gently pressed. Due to the water loss on the vine only a small amount of highly concentrated juice is released when pressed. The fermentation of the partly healthy, partly botrytised grapes starts spontaneously. The Grüner Veltliner Auslese was aged in stainless steel barrels and filled with 9.5 % alcohol and 125 g/l residual sugar.
It can accompany sweet as well as sour, whether as a lively aperitif with salted almonds, with a duck pâté or in combination with warm desserts, for example bread and butter pudding or the famous Austrian Kaiserschmarren (shredded pancake dish).
