About The Wine
The Wachau region is more than just postcard beauty. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage area, it embodies a living culture with its farming of steep terraced vineyards above castles, monasteries, baroque churches and farmhouses.
Emmerich Knoll III makes silky, herbal Gruner Veltliner grown on the local loess soils of the Kreutles single vineyard.
Glorious with its creamy texture of yellow plum and spiced biscuit dough, let it warm up a little to really show you everything it’s got.
About Emmerich Knoll
The Knoll family have been winegrowers in the Wachau village of Unterloiben for multiple generations. Whilst they specialise in Riesling and Gruner Veltliner from the Wachau’s best sites, they’re also faithful to the region’s other grapes; Muscat, Traminer, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Instantly notable for the powerful baroque image on their long slender bottles, the old bloke with a slightly stern Father Christmas look about him, turns out to be Saint Urban – the patron saint of winegrowers.
First gracing the Knoll family labels in 1962, it perfectly symbolises the Knoll contrasts - the best of traditional wine growing with the forward-thinking outlook of son Emmi (Emmerich Junior).
