Pale lemon in the glass. The nose is restrained and precise, with fresh green apple and spicy notes. On the palate, the 2015 Lois is quite full bodied and juicy, supported by harmonious acidity and herbal, peppery nuances that mingle with juicy green apple flavours. The finish is fresh with lingering pepperiness.
Aromas of ripe apples and a typical Veltliner spiciness marry to create a fascinating fruit bouquet. On the palate, the wine is soft and juicy, supported by a fine fruit acidity. Very harmonious, allowing for perfectly smooth drinking. Simply charming!
James, our Master of Wine, found this whilst visiting the Brndlmayer vineyards in Austria. With fresh citrus and flowery aromas, this wine has a crisp and fresh tatste and leaves a spicy finish on the palate.
Bright straw yellow. Subtle and playful on the nose with aromas of white pepper, some tobacco and exotic fruit, mango and pineapple. The refreshing acidity pairs with the powerful, elegant body and a medium alcohol level. Spicy white pepper and a hint of fresh herbs on the palate. Long finish! Serve well chilled directly from the fridge. The wine perfectly accompanies grilled fish (even with creamy sauces), deep-fried dishes, the traditional Austrian Tafelspitz (beef pot-roast), but also grilled white meat such as chicken or veal. Drink now or age for 4-6 years.

The Austrian national grape variety is marked by its primary rock character, a light green tinge, yellow apple scents, and spicy hay flavours supported by minerals. Gruner Veltliner is particularly good when served with cold starters, pastas, delicate salads or as an aperitif.
A perfect and versatile food wine. Delicious, marked white pepper, grapefruit and citrus aromas, elegant and long on the palate.
Clean and dry with flavours of fresh pears.
Spicy, peppery, and even exotic notes like grapefruit and pineapple. The very clear, juicy fruit and beautiful acidity make this a very animated, pleasurable wine to drink. Because of its structure and lengthy mineral palate, this is a wine of depth - even with its medium body. A wonderfully representative Veltliner from the Kamptal.
