Buchegger Gruner Veltliner Gebling, 750 mL
Weingut Buchegger was established in 1893. Current owner Walter Buchegger took over from his father in 1994, making him the sixth generation to run the family estate. He has 15 hectares of vines located in the Kremstal on mostly conglomerate soil topped with loess, where he grows Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, with a smattering of Zweigelt, Chardonnay and Merlot.
Geppling (also known as Gebling) is widely regarded as one of the best vineyards in the Kremstal region. It is planted on a steep, terraced hillside at 850 feet above sea level facing directly south. The soil there is conglomerate and the vines are 43 years old, producing low yields of very high quality fruit.
The wine shows aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, and flinty minerality. The ripeness of pear notes vies with the zesty freshness of the wine and makes for a lively, vivid and most enjoyable and refreshing wine. This is crisp, light bodied but balanced with bright acidity keeps your mouth watering for more.
