Grape varieties: Grüner Veltliner
Region: Weinviertel, Niederösterreich
Winemaker: Markus Sonntag, Enrico Bachechi und Claire Yuan
Grüner Veltliner and Weinviertel is a long-established duo found all over the region, but the ‘Sonntag Geschlossen’ wines challenge any preconception one might have. In Waitzendorf, at less than 10km from the Czech border, Markus ages his Grüner in large old oak casks, most of which were bought from his grandfather and assembled in the deep underground cellar in town. Ageing takes place on the full lees, which are stirred from time to time, resulting in a wine with texture, complexity, yet freshness and agility.
Sonntag Geschlossen 2014 spent over 8 years in a 1390l cask. From a cooler vintage, the wine is much leaner and vertical then its siblings, with a citrus core, floral notes and a mouth-watering acidity that defeats the time passing by. Drink superbly now, but has a long way ahead if we manage not to drink it.
