A liter of Gruner from a compelling under the radar winemaker. Barbara Öhlzelt is based in the village of Zobing (within the Kamptal region) producing lean, racy Gruner. Crunchy and crushable - this had my blind tasting group thinking it was Chablis! Try it and be amazed at the range Gruner can achieve in the right hands.
The Grüner Leader is from a combination of all of Barbara’s Grüner vineyards with an average vine age of 30 years. This includes fruit from some exemplary sites including 1er Cru Heiligenstein (sandstone), Seeburg (slate, sand, clay) and Kogelberg (granite, shale). No herbicides or chemicals are used on the soil (practicing organic). Fermented and vinified entirely in stainless steel.
