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

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

100% Gruner Veltliner


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.
