Intensive yellow with greenish hues; the nose offers a wide spectrum ranging from delicate herbal spice to tobacco notes to ripe fruit aromas; on the palate it has oodles of concentration; plenty of stuffng; a marvelous balance and ripe acidity.
The Huber family has wine growing roots dating back more than 220 years. Today the winery in Reichersdorf is in its 10th generation and is run by Markus Huber. In 2000 Markus took over four hectares from his father which, up to that point, had been farmed to produce the wines served in his family restaurant. His outstanding ability to manage the winery with sensitivity and consistency, both in the vineyards and the cellars, has ensured that in a very short space of time he has established Huber wines as an internationally acclaimed leading producer in Austria.
"Huber's 2014 Grüner Veltliner Alte Setzen 1ÖTW (from loess and conglomerate soils) starts with ripe, stewed and concentrated peach aromas on the nose; this leads to a fresh and medium-weight palate with an attractive purity, finesse and salinity in the finish. Lots of salt here in this pretty powerful and intense Veltliner, which comes along as a very good crowd-pleaser."
