Mantlerhof, Mosburgerin, Reserve 1er Cru 2011
For over 200 years this family has farmed a small parcel of vineyards, making tiny quantities of exquisite Gruner Veltliner. This is a fantastic grape that performs best in Austria.
This famous producer prefers to remain low-key and focus their efforts more on production than marketing. This wine comes from the 1er Cru classified site Mosburgerin, a vineyard noted for its complex flavours.
The nose has a youthful freshness yet depth of aromatics. Celery, pear, citrus, minerals, pepper, and other nuances combine to create vibrancy and complexity. The palate is dry, light to medium bodied, with layers of green fruit flavours wound around the crisply acidic backbone, that leads into a beautiful long finish.
Food and wine pairing: The perfect match with spicy Asian dishes, fresh seafood, and soft cheeses.
