Heuriger 2021, Set of 6’21 Stift Klosterneuburg, 750 ml

The word Heuriger has two meanings. First it describes the wine of the most recent vintage—in former years released after the 11th of November. The name also refers to a wine tavern, where the propietor's own wine is served with simple foods.
As the first wine of the vintage, the Heurige is Austria's Nouveau, or New Wine.
This Heurige is a specially light, easy drinking, fruity Cuvée composed of Müller Thurgau, Grüner Veltliner und Frühroter Veltliner. Green apple paired with exotic fruit aromas, a touch of yeast and an appealing acidity on the palate. A wine to enjoy right now.

Deadline for ordering is Oct 1, 2021. Release date is Nov 11, 2021

About Austrian 2021 Vintage

It has been rather cool in the early growing season, so that the vines did not bud early. This was a blessing, because we could avoid frost damage in the spring. The flowering season was warm and sunny and the heat wave in June was not a problem for the vines. Summer brought hot days with relatively cool nights and few storms that provided good moisture. A little bit of hail in late July did some controllable damage but not much.

We hope for a warm September to bring further ripening. Cool September nights will enhance the sugar versus acid ratio so that we once again can look forward to a very fresh and drinkable young wine with a rich acid skeleton commensurate with the depth of fruit. As in past years we expect a wine with finesse and freshness in addition to a rich mouthfeel and good fruit.

Harvest is expected to begin in mid-September.
