Winemaker's Notes:

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!
My Notes:

About Velt. 1:

Velt. 1 is the Gruner Veltliner in the Graf Koenigsegg range of wines from Schloss Halbturn. Since restructuring in 2001, the winery of Schloss Halbturn has set a new course and is opening a new and exciting chapter in Austrian and international wine history. Biodynamic principles were introduced in their 50 hectares of land in north Burgenland and a young, international wine team has been employed.

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.
