"Turning grapes into wine is a great privilege. Ideally, you're really an observer when it comes to making wine."
Single Vineyard Grüner Veltliner Käferberg ÖTW, a Premiuer Cru site that is undoubtedly destined to be promoted to Grand Cru once the classification is finalised.
Just one taste of this wine is a mind-blowing example of what this grape is truly capable of in the right hands.
Dense, elegant, radiant yet powerful.
Complex with notes of dark spices, ripe apple, rhubarb and red pepper colour the aromatic profile, with a soft yellow fruit core on the palate.
Juicy, full-bodied with a clear-focused palate. Combines a robust backbone of acidity with firm power.
Without a doubt, Kaferberg is the most sophisticated Gruner Veltliner of Weszeli’s range. Grown on limestone, this mineral bomb is flush with white pepper, dried orange peel, Indian spices, and discreet notes of framboise and kirsch. As the wine unfolds, chamomile and earl grey tea infused into a back-palate wired with fresh, surprisingly persistent acidity, keeping the wine sharp and tense.
Limestone—which this vineyard is almost exclusively made from—can often push wines to flaunt their power, but this is not the case with Kaferberg. When compared to neighboring Gruners grown on loess soil, this wine is more tense and sleek, perhaps even more intellectual.
All the wines are attractively labeled with an illustration of a local animal or insect, reflecting the estates' dedication to working harmoniously alongside nature and providing natural shelter for the endangered and more elusive creatures of the area. In turn, they all do their bit to protect the grapes, whether through natural fertilization, biodiversification of the soil, or pest control.
