2022 Bernhard Ott Grüner Veltliner Fass 4 BIO
Bernhard Ott says of himself: 'Ich bin ein Veltliner' and is a household name in Austria: he is even called Mister Veltliner. This has to do with his not insignificant stature, but much more with the quality of his grüner veltliners. The company is located in Niederösterreich in the Wagram, almost against Kamptal and was founded in 1889. From the village of Feuersbrunn, which lies in the plain of the old Danube basin, the 'Kellergasse' runs up into the vineyards. The vineyards are therefore all close to the domain, mostly in Wagram and a small part in Kamptal and are at an altitude between 200 and 350 meters. The soil consists mainly of loess carried by the wind, varying in depth from 1 to 20 meters and often mixed with gravel. Bernhard has been at the helm since 1993: he was 21 at the time, but his parents gave him the confidence to make the wines independently and they have not regretted it! For example, Bernhard was the first producer from Wagram in the Falstaff to be chosen as 'Winzer des Jahres' and his Rosenberg 2015 at Parker received 94-96 points. The wines are very pure and precise and have become increasingly fine and subtle over the past 15 years. Since 2006, biodynamic work has been carried out.
The Grüner Veltliner Fass 4 comes from the medium-sized parts of the Hengstberg and includes plots from Engabrunn, Feuersbrunn, Gösing and Fels. The Fass 4 has a spicy and aromatic nose with black pepper and a hint of chili pepper, fresh meadow flowers and ripe Granny Smith apple. Fine mineral notes, juicy and filling with a nice finish. The Fass 4 is a mineral and wonderfully juicy Veltliner with a precise and elegant, salty and stimulating aftertaste. This is an example of finesse and elegance.
