Salomon Undhof Grüner Veltliner Hochterrassen 2021, Austria
Fraternal twins Bert and Fay Salomon are the 9th generation to take over their family’s historic winery, a pillar of quality in the Wachau Valley since 1792. One of the oldest family-owned wineries in Austria, they were the first to export their wines to the United States in the 1930s. Certified sustainable. Sourced from high-altitude terraces in Stein and Krems. From the youngest Gruner vines of the estate, up to 25 years, planted in loess soils on terraces overlooking the Danube. Hand-harvested, destemmed, and pressed. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel for 3-4 weeks following by ageing on the lees for 2 months in steel. Hochterrassen literally translated means “high up terraces” and the Grüner from here displays the brighter acidity and lower alcohol expected from the cooler climate here.
