Winemaking Notes: Grüner Veltliner is harvested by hand from biodynamically farmed vines. Grapes macerate on the skins for 4–8 hours and are gently pressed over an 8 hour period. Fermentation occurs spontaneously with native yeast in oak. The Buteo is bottled without fining or filtration and with no added SO2.
Tasting Notes: Gindl's Buteo is a light, fresh and citrus-driven zero-zero Grüner Veltliner. This is a balanced white wine with well integrated acidity; enjoy notes of green apple and stone fruit with driven minerality.
