Vinification of the Grüner Veltliner Reserve Offenberg by Johann Topf
This white wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, namely Grüner Veltliner. For this wonderfully balanced varietal wine from Johann Topf, only the best grapes were brought in. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Lower Austria. The vines here dig their roots deep into soils of slate and loess. The Grüner Veltliner Reserve Offenberg is an Old World wine through and through, as this Austrian breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. After the hand harvest, the grapes immediately arrive at the winery. Here they are selected and carefully crushed. Fermentation follows in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally drawn into bottles.
