Characteristics Peternell Grui
Orange wines are wines where white grapes ferment with their skins. Very similar to red wines in their production method, these wines, which are very fashionable nowadays, are typical of many countries like Italy, Croatia, Spain (known as vinos brisados), and Austria. This is where they make Peternell Grui, an orange wine created by Kollektiv Peternell using Goldmuskateller and Grüner Veltliner.
To make this wine Kollektiv Peternel, who have mostly based their operations in Burgerland, decided to move to Niederösterreich, in Carnuntum (towards the Austrian-Slovak border). At the moment, they don’t have their own vineyards, so to release wines, they rely on biodynamic winegrowers in the area, from whom they buy grapes from old vineyards (aged over 30 years old). They have nothing to fear from the quality of the raw material. The loess soils, which are mixed in some areas with calcareous elements and gravels, have more than proven throughout history, especially since Roman times, to be more than suitable for vine growing. This is also helped by the climate, with cold winters (in some cases with snowfall) and hot, dry summers. These high temperatures, which contrast with the low temperatures at night, are also partly counteracted by the influence of Lake Neusiedl, which covers an area of 315 km² and acts as a temperature regulator. That means this large mass of water receives heat throughout the day, releasing some of this heat during the night (when the temperatures drop).
In the winery, Kollektiv Peternell believes in the least possible intervention. To be more precise, Peternell Grui is vinified with whole bunches of grapes that are transferred to tanks where the skins remain in contact with the juice for several days. Obviously the yeasts that remain in this maceration will begin to ferment, converting all the must into wine. These native microorganisms, which are found in the grape skins, begin to work spontaneously, without any nutrients. Once this process has finished, Peternell Grui is devatted and pressed (just like a red wine), and then returned to the stainless steel tanks where it spends almost a year of aging. Finally, Peternell Grui is bottled without adding any sulphites.
Peternell Grui is a great wine; a wine to keep an eye because they don’t make many bottles. Don’t miss out!
