Eisenhut Roter Veltliner 2017, Eschenhof Holzer, Wagram, Austria

rich, apricot, spice
Young winemaker Arnold Holzer is carving out something of a reputation for his Roter Veltliner, a pink- skinned grape actually unrelated to Grüner and grown almost exclusively in the Wagram region of Austria. This comes entirely from the estate’s Eisenhut vineyard. Showing spicy, smoky yet delicate white flower aroma alongside tropical fruit flavours, this is crisp and dry yet with a definite serious side.
