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 2018 Grüner Veltliner "St. Georg"
As you might recall, St. Georg is the village where the second parent grape of grüner veltliner was discovered in 2000; traminer is the mother vine and Sankt Georgen is the father. This site is cooler in temperature, sits mid-slope and is planted on pure limestone. Inspired by Burgundian winemaking techniques, the result of this wine is a very unique—almost Chablisienne-style—of grüner veltliner. It is clean and beautifully textured with fresh melon and rhubarb aromatics. We recommend decanting this wine.
