Nibiru - Alte Reben Grüner Veltliner 2017
A serious and premium Grüner Veltliner. Beautiful tension and energy, just enough texture, lovely acidity, complex and rich but without being over the top. A real stunner. This is a great example of a 'terroir' wine - grown on schist/amphibolite rock, there is a pronounced stony, mineral backbone here that distinguishes it from other Gruners from this region. Drinking beautifully now but will keep for another 8-10 years.
A great insight into the top range from Julia & Josef, a young couple who are only on their third vintage but showing impressive maturity. 'Alte Reben' means 'old vines' and represents a series of single-variety wines they produce from tiny parcels of their oldest and best vineyards.
