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.
"Velue" is the old name for Velm-Goetzendorf, the name of the old willow trees, which grow near the river. The Velue wines are nature-based and fermented spontaneously inside stainless steel tanks. The Velue Riesling is originated from the area Haidthal. The eastern-facing slope of the Haidthal provides ripe aromas and mineralality to the wines' personality.
The wine has an elegant, fresh aroma, dominated by floral shades, nuances of ripe fruits and tender notes of meadow grasses. A balanced and refreshing, caccents of fruits and white flowers, nuances of minerals. Refined finish. A keeper for sure.
