Austria’s Wagram region specializes in the local Roter Veltliner grape, which yields fragrant, silky whites like this one.
What You Need To Know
A decade ago, Austria’s crisp, spicy Grüner Veltliner wines became an obsession of trend-hunting US sommeliers, who—naturally—moved on to the country’s more obscure grapes the moment Grüner became popular. Today it’s bottlings of rare varieties like Gelber Muskateller or small-lot Roter Veltliner that help establish a wine pro’s cutting-edge cred. But, though grapes like Roter Veltliner may be esoteric, the wines hold a larger appeal. A case in point is this single-vineyard bottling from Leth, a 50-acre family estate in the heart of Roter’s native district. Old vines, hand-picked fruit and a sunny, rocky site yield a wine with lush fruit flavors and stony minerality.
Melon and passion fruit scents, plus a slatey, wet-stone note.
Minerally pear and whitepepper tones.
Serve well chilled.
Rich vegetables and seafood dishes; light white meats.
