Fritz Roter Veltliner
These classically styled whites are a little more serious and structured than their counterparts. Look for classics like White Burgundy, Austrian Gruner Veltliner, Loire Valley Chenin Blanc and more, as well as contemporary options from around the globe.
Roter Veltliner (not to be confused with the more widespread Gruner Veltliner) is a pink skinned grape that is thought to be the parent grape of the Veltliner family. Roter Veltliner represents only 0.4% of Austria’s grape planting, but when grown in the right areas it has the potential to produce powerful, complex white wines. Wagram is one of the best regions for Roter Veltliner due to its more temperate climate and deep loess soils. This wine is part of the Josef Fritz limited series and spends time in neutral oak casks to build even greater depth.
