The Harvey Nichols Grüner Veltliner is produced by Johannes Hirsch and his pioneering family from the village of Kammern. The Hirsch family championed the steep slopes that others didn’t want to work and now command some of the region’s most revered sites. In the midst of the red wine boom they chose to concentrate solely on the Grüner Veltliner and Riesling for which the region has since become world-renowned. And they were early adopters of organic and biodynamic farming methods.
Grapes were handpicked from the best-terraced sites where the large difference between day and night temperatures promotes slow ripening and results in a huge depth of flavour while maintaining the refreshing acidity. Fermented and matured purely in stainless steel to produce a wine of elegance that is full of regional character.
Dry zesty and generously aromatic with a crisp spiced finish and remarkable complexity. This exceptionally versatile wine is bursting with citrus green apple freshly cut flowers mango and pear and could partner practically anything from an Austrian schnitzel to Vietnamese salad.
