Variety: Gruner Veltliner
Everything that Weingut Knoll produces is on a cult level from their dry Rieslings and Gruners to their epic labels featuring St. Urban. Even the tasting notes of these wines could fill books and books. The winery, situated overlooking the Danube, has been making wine in the Wachau in Austria since the 1950s started by Emmerich and Monika, though now their sons help in the winemaking. The wines are famously intense, mineral-forward and can age for years and years.
This Gruner clocks in as a very full-bodied wine, typical for the Smaragd style. The “Vinothekfullung” style is different from the other wines in that it is harvested at full ripeness and wittingly coined a “dry Auslese.”
