Region

This region, meaning `lower Austria` lies on the fertile Danube plain to the west of Vienna. Here there are a number of different regions, such as Wachau, Kremstal and Kamptal, producing quality dry wines, mainly from the Riesling and Gruner Veltliner grape varieties. The Kamptal wine growing region, the area around StraB, in the Strasser Valley, traces back its origins of cultivating plants thousands of years with vines having been planted for hundreds of years. During medieval times, monastries and the nobility owned vineyards in this area.

Producer

Situated in the Kamptal wine region, Peter Dolle`s vineyards are cultivated on excellent rock and loess soils and on the protected southern foothills of the Manharsberg Mountain. With vineyards located around StraB at Brunngasse and Hasel, the Dolle winery owns excellent sites where mainly Gruner Veltliner and Riesling varieties of great quality and finese ripen.
Tasting Notes
Grüner Veltliner represents Austria`s unique contribution to the wine world. It is a variety that makes crisp dry white wines, combining perfume with substance. Immensely fresh aromas of herbs and peach blossom are permeated with fine mineral and peppery undertones, finishing with vibrant acidity.
Food
Good with seafood, Asian cuisine, stir fry and grilled vegetables.
