Abbazia di Novacella Gruner Veltliner Alto Adige 2022

$23.50

Abbazia di Novacella is a winery that sits atop the monastery of Neustift on the southern side of the Alps. It’s the northern most winegrowing region which falls under the Alto Adige AVA, and the wines here are absolutely electric. The cool climate and mineral rich soils plus the extreme elevation makes for some of the most intense and deeply concentrated flavors.

As you can imagine, the ripening period here is long and drawn out, extending well into late October while most of their southern neighbors are long done picking. Here, white wines such as Sylvaner, Kerner, Gewürztraminer and Veltliner are king, and these guys make some of the very best juice around.

This is a gorgeous Gruner that comes from vineyards nestled up in the Alps at an incredible elevation of over 2,000 feet. It’s as minerally and crisp as you could want, with a brightness and a zesty burst of citrus that awaits. This is a pristine, Alto Adige white wine from a great producer.

Expert Reviews

91 Points, James Suckling
“Fresh and mineral Gruner with notes of lemon peel, green apples, jasmine and wet stones. It’s clean and clear, with excellent texture too. Medium-bodied. Why wait? Drink now.”
