Weingut Tegernseerhof - 2017 Gruner Veltliner, Dürnstein, Federspiel
24+ in stock
Grown on a patchwork of different soils between the Danube and the Riesling terraces, Dürnstein's (formerly Frauenweingarten) alluvial river sands bring bright notes of spice, honeysuckle, and white pepper to the forefront. The piercingly mineral nose is further enhanced by notes of dried yellow and green grasses, white radish, while the deep, glycerol back palate is characterized by Indian spices and a slight minty, lime finish. Between the Veltliners in Tegernseerhof’s range (all of which are raised in stainless steel), this is the easiest and most universal for all palates.
Note: 2017 Tegernseerhof Durnstein is the new name for Frauenweingarten. Durnstein is the town in which the estate is located. There is no differences in parcels or winemaking. Everything is the same as previous vintages.
Martin decided to change the name from Frauenweingarten to Durnstein in the 2017 vintage because he thought it best represented where the wine is from – the town of Durnstein. Also, Frauenweingarten is the only one of his skus that isn't a single parcel so its like his “estate bottling”.
