Freiheit Grüner Veltliner
Martin Nigl of Weingut Nigl only started making wine in 1985, but his family had been growing grapes for 200 years. Nigl makes compelling riesling and grüner veltliner on stony terraced vineyards in the Krems on the edge of the Senftenberg Mountains.
This family-run operation practices sustainable farming and benefits from their special granite gneiss terroir and huge diurnal temperature swings that help draw out the ripening season, providing more depth and spiciness to the wines.
The wines of Nigl are racy wines full of finesse and a distinct minerality native to this special terroir.
