Sohm & Kracher

Weinviertel | Illmitz

When long-time friends Aldo Sohm and Gerhard Kracher decided to make wine together, they brought to the project decades of collective experience and a shared love of great foods and wines of the world — especially dry grüner veltliner from their native Austria. They knew the focus would be grüner veltliner grown in the Weinviertel made according to two basic principles: the wines should be (low to) moderate in alcohol and should never be unctuous in character. Since their first vintage in 2009, they have kept a sharp focus on one variety — from the brisk, peppery “Lion” to the Chablis-like “St. Georg.”

Sohm & Kracher 2012 Grüner Veltliner "Single Vineyard"

The "Single Vineyard" bottling was the inaugural wine that launched the Sohm & Kracher label. This site is comprised of calcareous, gneiss and loess soils and benefits from the cool Nordic air. The wine undergoes the same pressing and settling regiment as St. Georg and Alte Reben but is fermented 100% in oak: one new 1000L Stockinger cask and the rest in neutral barrique. The texture is rich but the acidity is higher and more polished.
