Emmerich Knoll Grüner Veltliner Ried Kreutles 2017

12.5% abv

Vol- 75cl

From the bottom of the Lobenberg and grown on deeper soils of sandy loess and weathered primary rock. A bright white fruit and lemon aroma intertwined with floral flavors (mostly lavender); this leads to an elegant, medium-bodied, close-meshed, well structured and nicely mineral palate with a quite complex finish. This is a Federspiel bottling denoting an alcohol content of between 11.5% and 12.5% by volume. The name Federspiel refers back to the times of falconry, when this favourite form of noble hunting was practiced in the Wachau.

The scenic village of Unterloiben sits at the foot of the steeply rising terraces situated at the eastern entrance to the Wachau. In the middle of the small village is the Knoll family winery which has been cultivating its vineyards for more than 200 years.

Emmerich Knoll is a quiet and discrete man whose wines reflect his reserved character. Giles MacDonough describes Emmerich as “scatty”, and it is true that he looks a bit like a distracted don, but he is a deeply serious and traditional winemaker with spotless cellars filled with oak vats and some small inox tanks.

Austere when the wines are young, they steadily develop their expression with years of bottle age. Knoll is a traditionalist. His wines age in classic large wooden barrels and are bottled late so that they may slowly and gently find their harmony.

You can recognise these fine wines by their bright, colorful labels depicting St. Urban, the protector of wine growers.

Today, the Knoll winery has twelve hectares of vineyards on some of the best sites in the region. Nearly 85 % of the land is devoted to Grüner Veltliner and Riesling respectively, the rest is planted with Chardonnay, Gelber Traminer and Gelber Muskateller.
