The vines for Prager Grüner Veltliner Wachstum Bodenstein Smaragd were planted in 1990 in a high-altitude section of the Hinterseiber vineyard (literally bordering the forest at the top of the mountain), at an altitude of 440 to 460m. A couple of decades later, not only does the vineyard produce incredibly elegant and mineral wines, but while others have problems with over-ripening, the Bodenstein wines, even in hot vintages like 2003 and 2006, are balanced and elegant. Anytime you see the “Bodenstein” moniker, you should know that one of the points of the wine is to showcase genetic diversity.
