The new team at Schloss Halbturn attaches particular importance to grape selection and uses a very strict hand-sorting system. Only the finest quality grapes reach the press, which is one of the most advanced and delicate presses in Austria. The pressings are then sent to a modern, state-of-the-art winery cellar.

Velt. 1 Gruner Veltliner 2005
Gruner Veltliner from Austria
The nose is clean, displaying ripe apple and peach aromas. On the palate, mild acidity makes it crisp, while the firm mineral backbone gives it strength to work well with many cuisines. It can be paired with fresh salads, pasta, fish or Asian fare, but is ideal as a patio, pool, beach or boat wine!

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
