Wine made of organic grown grapes is a trend increasingly important and demanded. The winery of Johannes Zillinger’s family is one of those who can count on the biggest experience in this sector. His father Hans turned to organic winegrowing already in the 1980es and is one of its pioneers in Austria. The soils and the vines have been vitalized since 30 years and are accordingly robust.
In 2013 Johannes Zillinger breaks fresh ground to express the vitality and aromatic power of his grapes even better in his wines. The assortment was newly structured and the wines were given more freedom during maturing. New – or old – methods are applied. Johannes Zillinger can afford this because no less than perfect grapes are used – the basis for all good natural wines. His wines show particular individuality and character with animating drinkability. A new leaf has been turned over in the 350 year long history of the winery.
The “Kellerberg” is the most traditional location of the village Velm Götzendorf and also the heart of the Zillinger winery. Several types of thymes were planted for greening. The old Veltliner-vines are constantly providing the same high quality of wine every year.
This vintage showcases a bright light golden colour. Ripe nose with generous fruit, peach, yellow, plum, citrus and floral notes, quite spicy as well. The palate has a very nice bite, rather full with a fresh backbone, layers of stone fruit, juicy and rounded texture, long and finish. We love it!
