Nikolaihof 'Im Weingeburge' Gruner Veltliner Smaragd, Wachau 2017

Nikolaihof’s holdings are some of the farthest east in the Wachau, near the village of Mautern on the Danube’s south bank. These are also some of the oldest known vineyards in Europe, with sites such as “im Weingebirge” being mentioned as far back as 470AD. Whether it’s Nikolaus biodynamic know-how, his focus on ancestral vinification techniques, or the quality of his terroir, the resulting wines are wildly unique and joyful and immensely food-friendly. 
  • Grapes: Grüner Veltliner
  • Farming: Demeter-certified Biodynamic.  
  • Terroir: Clay, Loess, Paragneiss soils within Mautern. The soil is varied with loess on the higher terraces and deep topsoil over primary rock lower down the slope. 
  • Vinification:  Long, slow fermentation in 100% Stainless steel
  • Aging: The wine ages on its lees in old casks, giving creamy texture
  • Tasting Notes: A tropical, layered and precise wine, the Gruner offers tons of pithy citrus notes, accented by mango and freshly cut guava aromas. Pair with spicy dishes, fried poultry or a picnic in the sun. 
  • Scores: 96PTS, James Suckling
