This is a south facing site, high elevation site. The consistently high extract from this site is due to the deep roots of the vine, intensity and spiciness of its southern exposure. The soils here are a mix of deep, chalky loess and red gravel - a sort of mix of the two soil types from Rosenberg and Stein.
A lovely freshness emanates from the wine, a mix of fresh fern, ripe lemon, Mirabelle plum and pear. The palate has a lovely zestiness that is enhanced by just a little fizz and a phenolic edge. The finish has a gentle, creamy savoriness. There is inherent balance and great freshness despite the warm vintage. Drink until 2030.
Ott's 2018 Grüner Veltliner Ried Spiegel 1ÖTW is bright, clear and fresh on the deep and ripe yet precise and mineral nose. Lush and intense, with a loessy character and texture, this is a full-bodied yet fresh and linear, crystalline and intense Veltliner with a nicely phenolic, slightly dry finish. Tasted at Schloss Grafenegg in September 2019.
