Wachau 2018 Vintage - per Vinea Wachau

Balanced, dense and elegant, the wines of 2018 are marked by a style typical of cooler vintages. Compared with 2017, the wines rate somewhat lower on alcohol content and surprisingly high on acidity. Sufficient precipitation and low temperatures marked the outset of 2018 wine year, and budding began relatively late. April and May were unusually warm, so the vineyards made up for the late start, with flowering setting in already in late May. The warm June weather then accelerated flowering, while a cooler period later in July ultimately gave way to a very hot summer.

Thanks to the hot summer weather, harvesting began very soon, already in early September, only to continue as usual until well into October, and even November in the vicinity of Spitz. The yield for Grüner Veltliner was moderately higher than expected for most years, while smaller quantities than in past years were harvested of other varietals, such as Riesling and Weißburgunder/Pinot blanc.
