Weingut Gottfried Mittelbach
Grüner Veltliner ‘Rosshimmel’ Kremstal DAC

A typical Grüner Veltliner, which shows a lot of body due to the spontaneous fermentation and characterises the loess soil very well.

“When tasting the Grüner Veltliner from this region, we were conscious of the Löss soil which give the wines their typical character“

Their cuvée Rosshimmel is a beautiful Grüner Veltliner with floral character and great acidity.

Grüner Veltliner

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Situated on the high plateau over the Lobterassen, the Rosshimmel situation with its heavy, profound clay soil, differs from the sandy loess soil spreading in the Kremstal area. The stones on the vineyard come from the former European Inland sea.

They run and cultivate 20 hectares of vineyards and there is no use of pesticides.

Stainless steel tanks. Stirring, 4 hours maceration, use of pneumatic press, spontaneous fermentation at 18°C

Tasting Note

Pale yellow with a green hue; spicy notes on the nose, a little spice on the palate, creamy with a pleasant acidity, long lasting finish. Great floral character and acidity.

Decanter Magazine Tasting Note

“A step up in quality from many commercial Grüners you see on the shelves, this has pear-drop, lime and white florals notes, along with a zippy lemon sherbet energy. Steely with a mineral length, it’s intense but somehow ethereal at the same time”. 92 Points, Amy Wislocki, Decanter Magazine, April 2021

Food Pairing

A great partner to smoked salmon, sushi, sashimi and carpaccio. Perfect with Asian food, asparagus, artichokes, courgette and fennel dishes; salads, cold meats, fresh goat’s cheese or to be enjoyed on its own
