Setzer, Weinvertel Gruner Veltliner Ausstich, 1990 (1.5L)

White Wine from Other Austria, Austria
$149.99

This is one more, very special treat, from the Setzer family I just had to add to this email. It was offered to us from the importing team over at Skurnik Wines & Spirits, albeit only a handful of bottles. If you've never had aged Grüner Veltliner then you've been missing out on the amazing heights of complexity and structure to which it can soar. Once these are gone, they are gone.

From the northern corner of Austria in the Weinvertel comes the small family estate of Setzer. This area was once an ancient seabed which is now laden with limestone, sand, and gravel, unique in the region. The limestone gives a new take on Grüner Veltliner with more mid palate lift and a salty finish, nearly Chablisiean. The family has moved towards organic methods, is increasing their high density selection massale plantings and use a deft hand in the cellar.
