Little Buteo 2019
Little Buteo, lighter version of Michael's Buteo wine, is a stream-lined wine with pure minerality, clarity, and structure. Think Golden Delicious apples, lime zest, summer melon, and just a touch of vanilla, all underpinned by refreshing mineral tones. Little Buteo is names after one of the many animals living on his farm-- the buzzard-- a bird that is wild and free, much like his wine, and is the guardian of his vineyards.
We love it with… 🍲🦀 :fresh herbs:
Grape: Grüner Veltliner
Region: Weinviertel, Austria
Vinification: Grüner Veltliner is harvested by hand from biodynamically farmed vines. 50% of the grapes are whole cluster pressed, while 50% macerate on the skins for 4–8 hours. Grapes are slowly and gently pressed over 8 hours. Fermentation occurs spontaneously with native yeast in steel. Little Buteo aged on the lees without SO2 in steel tanks for 6 months.
