The 2019 vintage is shaping up to be exciting: producers across all of Lower Austria are over the moon, with the quality post-harvest looking excellent. This is the third hot vintage in a row, but the heat came early on in the season and then cooled and remained dry through to harvest. Thanks to this cooler, drier end of the season, phenolic ripeness is excellent, and the acidities are wonderfully balanced, making for what will undoubtedly be a legendary year. I was particularly impressed with the quality of our Exhibition Grüner Veltliner and it’s also a cracking vintage for Austrian reds too. The perfect vintage to provide the first ever Austrian wine that we will be offering en primeur.
