Winzer Familie Gregor Schup Roter Veltliner, 2018, Thermenregion, Austria
£20.25 (inc VAT)
It takes a certain level of wine-making to produce a bottle that is so brazen on the nose, and so lightly-balanced in flavour. The Schup family have successfully infused fragrant basket fruits into a beautiful greenish-yellow wine that is a splendidly complete mouthful. Versatility in equal measure, the Roter Veltliner compliments any number of dishes. A rounded, lifted, exemplary bottle!
Deep in the heart of the Austrian Wienerwald, in the little town of Guntramsdorf, lies Winzer Familie Gregor Schup. For over 300 years they’ve lived here, where Eastern-European climate meets warm and damp Atlantic air, learning to cultivate quality fruits from vines grown close to The Eichkogel mountain (just 367m above sea level). The Eichkogel is a UNESCO recognised biosphere, so the conservation and sustainability of its land and ecosystem is lawfully protected. It’s fair to say, optimising berries for exquisite wine has become almost a sixth sense to them today. They truly are perfectionists of nature. What their land yields is respected, and what‘s respected reaps big rewards. It is undoubtedly the Schup family’s respect and expertise, that makes their wines so palpably unique.
