Additional Information on Felsner Gruner Veltliner

Winery: Felsner

Varietal: Gruner Veltliner

Gruner Veltliner is a pale skinned white wine grape varietal most closely associated with central European countries such as Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In recent years, it has spread somewhat to several New World countries, where it is becoming gradually more popular and regularly seen in wine stores. One of the main attractions of this grape varietal for winemakers is the fact that it is highly versatile, and can be used for the production of several different wine styles, including young, dry white wines, excellent sparkling wines, and it is also a grape varietal which is well suited for aging Gruner Veltliner has the ability to express much of its terroir, and the best examples are generally those which are full of delightfully mineral-rich flavors alongside the more usual notes of citrus fruits and peach.

Region: Kremstal Kamptal

Along the banks of the beautiful and expansive River Danube in Austria, you can find the rich, lush wine regions of Kremstal and Kamptal, both highly respected and famous throughout the centuries for the quality of their produce, and the distinctly Austrian character of their wines. Being so close to such a large and important river obviously has major benefits for the vintners who work in these parts; the Danube carries much needed nutrients and minerals from the mountains to the north, and as such, the vineyards of Kremstal and Kamptal are packed full of grapes high in mineral flavors and fresh, crisp, alpine notes. Riesling and Gruner Veltliner are the two primary grapes of this region, and Austria is renowned for producing some of the world's finest wines made from these varietals.

Country: Austria

Austria has a wonderfully long and illustrious history of wine production which stretches back over four thousand years, and reached its zenith under the Austria-Hungary dual monarchy in the late 19th century, when Vienna was one of the most important centers of culture and fine living in the world. Today, Austria's fertile soils and long, hot summers help the fifty thousand hectares of vineyards in the country achieve exceptionally high quality yields, which are used primarily for the production of the elegant dry white wines for which the country is renowned. The most important grape varietal is still Grüner Veltliner, although many wineries are beginning to expand their repertoire and experiment with many imported grapes from France and further afield, including Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
