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 2020 Grüner Veltliner (Liter)

With the introduction of this surprisingly sophisticated liter bottling Sohm & Kracher explore a third terroir for grüner veltliner. While the Lion is sourced entirely from Weinviertel, the fruit for this bottling is grown entirely in Illmitz, opposite Lake Neusiedl from the Leithaberg hill where the soils are more sand. This stainless steel grüner veltliner is a mineral focused expression, incredibly easy to drink with austere depth.
