Reviews of purchase Johannes Trapl, Carnuntum Weiss, 2016
The wine is bright yellow-green color.
The lush, intense taste of the wine is well balanced. Its simply insane acidity is tamed by soft tones of fruit and lingering notes of spices.
Typical shades of citrus in the aroma of wine are combined with notes of tropical fruits, honey and hazelnuts.
Wine is suitable for pasta with cream sauce, fish dishes, snacks antipasti and fresh seafood.
Energetic, refreshing white wine Johannes Trapl, Carnuntum Weiss combines 3 grape varieties - Grüner Veltliner, Weissburgunder and Welschrisling. Their vines grow on calcareous-sandy soils around Stixneusiedl and are about 25 years old. Grapes are collected in a degree of optimal maturity, separated from the crests and pressed. After 48 hours of maceration, it is fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature. A small part of the wine passes this stage in oak barrels. Then the wine ripens for 6 months in stainless steel tanks.
"I want to feel the diversity, elegance and strength that exist in our vineyards, and maximally save them in wines, without losing at the same time to reduce perceptions and good pitches," - Johannes Trapl.
Passionate winemaker, Johannes Trapl, was born in 1978 and created his own winery at the age of 24 years. He was trained in Austria, and then underwent training in France and California. Its organic farm is located in the Carnuntum region, where traditional Austrian varieties are grown. All grapes are carefully controlled, which allows to guarantee the ideal quality at the time of collection. This principle Johannes Trapl also adheres to the winery, where the grapes for his premium wines are crushed by the feet, fermented and the wines ripen in amphorae. This technology helps him not to lose control and implement the efforts and diligence that were manifested in the vineyard. Being an uncompromising winemaker Johannes Trapl will never flirt with the consumer to please new trends. He continues his journey calmly, confidently and purposefully. He thinks that much is already known about winemaking, but not all is achieved yet.
