2016 Gruner Veltliner "T26" (Federspiel) (Tegernseerhof)

Tegernseerhof, Gruner Veltliner "T26" Federspiel, Wachau, Austria 2016 {biodynamic}

100% Gruner Veltliner

VIBRANT CITRUS & PEACH,  WHITE PEPPER & MINERAL, GRÜNER GOLD

Hailing from the precariously steep inclines of the Wachau’s vineyards, the always-excellent T26 cuvée takes its name from an eventful tasting session with Austrian importer, Klaus Wittauer, who was in the Mittelbach family cellar at their Tegernseerhof winery, searching for his absolute favorite among the estate’s tanks of recently vinified less-expensive Grüner.  When he found the one, he exclaimed, "This is it!  I'll take the whole tank."  That tank was #26, and “T26" has sense served as the nickname for the estate’s greatest value outing in Grüner Veltliner each year. Classic stone-fruit and zesty citrus carry notes of the variety’s hallmark white pepper and flint. Prost!

Serving Suggestion: Juicy fried or oven-roasted chicken w/ crisp skin. Wiener Schnitzel or other breaded, fried cutlets. Mild, flavorful cheeses.

Martin Mittelbach’s Höhereck vineyard, itself, is barely an acre in size and was laid out carefully by his family in the 1960s. Its 60 year Grüner vines yield liquid gold...
