The Höpler family’s Grüner Veltliner is light in alcohol, with fiery minerality – a brilliant introduction to Austria. The sweet Trockenbeerenauslese is made with a selection of shrivelled and nobly rotted grapes from the humid rolling slopes around Eastern Austria’s large Neusiedlersee lake. This is a classic, with extremely high levels of sweetness allied with juicy acidity and a complex blend of exotic fruits and marmaladey botrytis.
Other wines by this producer
Light greenish yellow, subtle mineral tones with a soft, stone-fruit aroma. Fully ripened, well structured with refined sweetness of fruit on the palate, a touch of black pepper and a delicate, creamy finish.
Nose of violets and tangy blood orange with a textured and juicy palate. Blackberries, smooth tannins and refreshing acidity. No oak.
A unique wine made from fully matured grapes which are left on the vine until they reached a temperature of at least -7°C (19.4°F). The water in the grapes forms ice crystals, and after gentle pressing the remaining concentrate is made into an exceptional wine with elegant sweetness balanced by refreshing acidity.
Trockenbeerenauslese directly translated means "dry-berry-selection". The resultant wine is rich and concentrated with complex tones that treat the nose and palate to hints of nutmeg, clove, honey, apricot and citrus.
