$ 15.25

Unger was founded in 1987 by Dr. Wolfgang Unger and is now operated by his daughter Petra, and Konrad Hackl. Petra Unger, member of the “Traditionsweingüter” and “11 women and their wines”, cultivates 11 hectares of vineyards in the Kremstal-region with mainly Grüner Veltliner and Riesling vines. Situated on the eastern frontier of the Wachau region, where the steep and narrow Danube valley opens into gently rolling hillsides, Petra has a particular talent to optimize the various microclimates and soil types in her vineyards. She continuously produces characterful wines, which have great fruit extraction, balance and elegance.

Petra Unger’s range of wines include Classic and Reserve bottlings. The Classic wines have a maximum alcohol content of 12.5%, are delightfully fresh and clean with a fruit-forward, elegant style. The Reserve wines are ripened longer and may slightly exceed 12.5% alcohol. These dry wines are full bodied, rich and rewarding delivering long flavors that express a sense of place.

Winemaker Notes

Bright, light straw yellow. Intense aromas of yellow apples, juicy pears, tangerines and freshly ground white pepper. The fine flavors on the palate are supported by an elegant body and a fruity acidity. Veltliner typical reverberation!
