Johannes Zillinger Velue Riesling 2018 (750ml)

Organic / Biodynamic / Natural

"Velue" is the old name for Velm-Goetzendorf, the name of the old willow trees, which grow near the river. This dry Riesling is nature-based and fermented spontaneously inside stainless steel tanks. The Velue Riesling is originated from the area Haidthal. The eastern-facing slope of the Haidthal provides ripe aromas and minerals. The grapes of this wine are harvested by hand and carefully selected. After a short maceration time the Velue Riesling becomes spontaneously fermented at 23-25°C inside a steel tank. malolactic fermentation with battonage for 5 months on the lees. The fact that it is unfined and unfiltered adds to the mid-palate weight, as this Riesling has the texture and complexity of a much more expensive wine.

Johannes Zillinger learned early on from his father about the craft of organic winemaking, about viewing the vineyard as a habitat and protecting the environment instead of poisoning it. His father Hans turned to organic viticulture in 1983 and was one of its pioneers in Austria. When Johannes took over the winery and made it his own in 2013, he took it ever further and became biodynamic, starting a new chapter for the 350 year old winery. His wines are certified Demeter biodynamic.

Johannes is all about the philosophy of biodynamic farming. He even grows his own herbs for tea tinctures to use as treatments in his vineyards. The wines are all spontaneously fermented, lightly filtered, and minimally sulfured only at bottling keeping with the purity so desired. The difference with these wines are their approachability to the entire consumer base. Everyone can appreciate the cleanliness, flavor, and precision of this juice regardless of their interest in organic or natural wines.
